World Dance Festival: Dancing Across Cultural Borders
Tibetan Song & Dance Ensemble| Junko Fisher Dance Company (Okinawan Dance)|Sol La Argentinita Ensemble (Flamenco)
Roulette, 509 Atlantic Avenue (at 3rd Ave), Downtown Brooklyn
The first day of this exciting dance festival features the lively and stunning Tibetan Ral-pa dance, the dance of the wanderers that combines recitation and acrobatics, performed by graduates of the Tibetan Institute of the Performing Arts in Dharamsala; graceful folk dances which evoke the daily life of the people from Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost archipelago, performed by acclaimed Okinawan-born and Tokyo-trained dancer Junko Fisher and company; and soulful flamenco with the ensemble of Sol La Argentinita, who over the past decade has established herself as one of the top flamenco dancers/choreographers in New York.
Made possible in part with public funding provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State legislature, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
