Collage, with its roots in Turkish and Eastern European folk dance, and BoSoma, rooted in American modern dance, each speak to today’s audience with creative, new techniques and choreography to enhance these cultural foundations. They join their artistic talents Sunday, April 30th in the Blackman Auditorium of Northeastern University to present UNITED. BoSoma had the privilege of collaborating with Collage in 2004 at their premiere performance, Velocity. After 13 years BoSoma and Collage are excited to share the stage to reveal the unity of cultures expressed and enabled by dance.
BoSoma, led by Artistic Director, Katherine Hooper, will perform its newest work, CONVERGENCE, which was inspired by Anila Qyayyum Agha's installation, Intersections, on display in 2016 at the Peabody Essex Museum. It offered people of all cultures a room of reflection through light and beauty. Hooper has created a narrative of a group of 10 individuals, inhabiting sacred ground as they work together to move forward collectively through resilience, empathy, and a commitment to making collective change.
Collage, led by artistic director/founder, Ahmet Lüleci, will present repertoire pieces representing the company’s range from traditional choreographies to more modern interpretations that remain true to the spirit of the dance. The choreography showcases the beauty, energy and passion of these neglected dance forms as well as the cultural heritage they represent.
