Add to Calendar 27-01-2012 27-01-2012 15 Dzul Dance Presents 'Maya 2012: A New Beginning' Dzul Dance fuses modern dance with aerial arts and contortionism as a means to communicate indigenous pre-Hispanic culture. One of the only indigenous Mayan choreographers in the world, artistic director Javier Dzul was born and raised in a Mayan tribal community in southern Mexico performing ritual dances, speaking Mayan, and studying ancient teachings until the age of 16. Dzul provides a bridge between contemporary art and historical heritage, illustrating the ancient Mayan prophecies related to the 2012 phenomenon. The choreography simultaneously explores Dzul's past experiences with rituals of transformation, as well as his past relationship and connection to the natural world. The 2012 January program features performances by artistic director Javier Dzul, guest contortionists Jonathan Nosan (director of "Acroback") and Anna Venizelos (former soloist with Cirque du Soleil), along with Dzul Dance company members Kyla Ernst-Alper, Desiree Sanchez (Chelsea Piers), Ji Hyeun Bang, Chellamar Bernard, Cornelius Brown, Robin Taylor Dzul, Courtney Jackson, Nicole Lichau, Orlando Martinez, and Matthew Sparks. With lighting design by Mike Inwood and costume design by Javier Dzul, this diverse and eclectic group opens the door to another dimension. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=100541 Baruch Performing Arts Center true DD/MM/YYYY
