cos.mo.pol.i.tan

 

Toronto-based Lua Shayenne & Company perform traditional and contemporary African works using current events to be a vehicle for spiritual and social progress. Their upcoming show cos.mo.pol.i.tan is made up of two works, both choreographed by Shayenne and accompanied by live and energetic drumming. Landed Immigrant is based on the experiences of newcomers to Canada while Hybrid looks at the theme of identity through the lense of multiculturalism. Hybrid is a collaboration with 3MW Collective, a group of female visual artists who use similar themes in the creation of their art. The world premiere of these new works takes place at Harbourfront Centre, May 29-31 and is a DanceWorks CoWorks/NextSteps event.
