About the Show

Crossing Waters
Candace Kumar

Crossing Waters is a cultural reimagination piece inspired by the natural flow of water. The dancers perform Pangalay, the fingernail dance performed by communities in the Sulu Archipelago in the southern Philippines. The movements are slow and meditative, imitating the Sulu Sea combined with modern hip hop music and street dance styles.

Beyond the line explores the relevance of boundaries in the mental and physical state. Through movement and conversation, we dissect the idea of self-generated boundaries, boundaries within a partnership and breaking/crossing boundaries.

Kiyo Asaoka

A Japanese traditional music instrument player/singer Aki and a flamenco dancer Kiyo bring their collaborative artistic material together. It is a mix of two different art forms, and newness and tradition.
