Donna Sternberg and Dancers presents One Song, Many Dances on November 7 and 8 at 8:30 pm. One piece of music by renowned world music composer Yuval Ron is interpreted by five dance companies from different cultural backgrounds. This grand experiment investigates how an audience’s perception of music is affected by seeing it through the lens of dances from different cultures. Performing on the program are Arpana Dance Company (Indian), Esplendor Dance Company (Latin), Mandala DanceWorks (Middle Eastern), Wilfried Souly (African) and Donna Sternberg & Dancers (contemporary American). In light of recent current events, this showcasing of the beauty of cultural diversity through dance could not be more timely. A panel discussion with the choreographers focusing on the cultural elements that define their work and the influences they had on interpreting Mr. Ron’s music will follow the performance.
One Song, Many Dances will be presented on November 7 and 8 at 8:30 P.M. at the Ivy Substation, 9070 Venice Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232. Tickets are $25 general admission, $20 students and seniors and can be purchased at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/877597.
These performances are made possible, in part, by a Culver City Performing Arts Grant with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment. For more information, please contact Donna Sternberg at [email protected] or visit the website at www.dsdancers.com.
