The goal of the workshop is for dancers to learn basic temple dance techniques from a variety of cultures in order to embellish their performance repertoire and add to it unique and exciting stylistic elements from the world of Odissi Fusion, Javanese Fusion, Cambodian & Chinese Apsara Fusion, and Hula Fusion.
"Aquarius" is the opening for Nocturnal, a full length theatrical Tribal Fusion show by Moria Chappell that incorporates temple dance fusion. The ensemble piece features a dreamlike landscape that goes into the deep waters of the unconscious where animals, archetypes, yoginis, and music coalesce.
Performers include Moria Chappell, Bagoas, Victoria Teel, Elena Faye, and Jenna Shear.
