Presenting Zikr’s 2017 Season-
Zikr Dance Ensemble presents its 2017 season, featuring the world premiere of “Ancient Shadows”, a mesmerizing exploration into the spiritual ancestry and mythology of the indigenous peoples of Central and South America, set to an original score by noted Boulder musician and composer Jesse Manno.
This year’s program will also feature audience favorites, “Guides”, a pas de trois set to the beautiful music of Tomaso Albinoni’s Adagio, and “Cham Mandala”, a journey into sacred Tibetan dance and symbolism. Rounding out the program will be a reprise of Artistic Director, David Taylor’s critically acclaimed pas de deux from last season, "Altar" as well as two Gurdjieff sacred movements, “The Trembling Dervish” and “The Dance of the Brotherhood of Olbogmek”.
The 2017 company will feature some of the finest trained dancers in the Colorado area and guest performers from the Colorado Ballet. We hope to see you at one of our shows this season.
"David-I just want to tell you in writing that Samsara was absolutely fantastic. I loved the surreal like moments where dancers came in for a moment from the back. You really matched the energy and intensity of the music and synced with it amazingly well.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole show actually! I hope lots of people make it out for the next couple of weekends and of course i will recommend it."
“Samsara is clearly one of the most powerful, yet sensitive and profound works I have seen in 35 years.”
