Cultural Intimacy In Motion is an intersection of four artists that explodes conventional notions of cross-cultural dialogue. VCUarts, in partnership with the Modlin Center for the Arts, presents two collaborative dance performances and an in-depth discussion with the artists who made them. Torobaka unites classical Indian Kathak with Spanish Flamenco in a duet performed to live music by the acclaimed London choreographer Akram Khan, and Sevillian-born Israel Galván. Torobaka is a thrilling stylistic dialogue. Inspired by the rhythmic roots of civilization and the sacred relationship between the hunter and animal, the performers use innovative choreography, exquisite technique, and contemporary storytelling to create a distinctly new form of dance. Israel Galván has been called “revolutionary,” “avant-garde,” and simply “a genius.” Known for his complex and rapid-fire footwork punctuated by moments of stillness and silence, Galván dances flamenco on the cutting edge.
Presented to diverse audiences in the Mid-Atlantic region, portions of this culturally dynamic project will also be distributed nationally via live stream and/or archived high-definition broadcast.
