DANCE: Dancenorth & Lucy Guerin Inc.

  • Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center 8270 Alumni Drive College Park, MD, 20740 United States (map)

Two of the world’s leading dance companies, Dancenorth and Lucy Guerin Inc. collaborate with tour-de-force Indonesian music duo Senyawa in this cross-cultural event. Drawing influences from both Indonesian folk ritual idioms and western metal bands, Senyawa’s unusual sound reinvents the Javanese spiritual tradition of entering trance through dance and music by fusing hand-made electric string instruments with operatic melodies, metal vocals and contemporary choreography. Ensemble members will conclude the performance by selecting audience members to co-create an unparalleled shared experience.
