PERFORMANCE

Dance a Mile in My Shoes/Bells

Date: Sun, Nov 17, 2019 07:00PM
Price: $45 regular, $40.50 Friends, $33.75 students and seniors
Includes same-day Museum admission

Experience an enthralling mix of Flamenco and Kathak dance from award-winning performers Carmen Romero and Bageshree Vaze. Accompanied by live muscians, the two dancers draw from their personal experiences of migration and displacement to explore the diasporic movement of their respective dance traditions. Flamenco orginates in Andalusia, Spain, and Kathak has its origins in Northern India, making for a lively rhythmic exchange full of surprising connections and captivating flair.

 

Presented in collaboration with Pratibha Arts and Carmen Romero, this event is part of the Museum’s fifth annual Duende: Flamenco Festival, and part of our 2019/20 Performing Arts season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performative arts in connecting communities, preserving culture, and spurring social change.

Bageshree Vaze and Carmen Romero are award-winning dance artists, prominent for many years in Toronto’s arts community. Vaze won the KM Hunter Award in 2010 and Romero was the finalist for the Toronto Arts Foundation’s International Achievement in Dance in 2013.
