Diving deep beneath the surface, Dance Migration pushes the boundaries of Brazilian samba with its debut production GAIA this September 16,17 & 18 at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre Theatre.
Gaia, is the ancient Greek name for the proto-goddess Earth, the spouse of Uranos, or Sky. From Gaia the Gods and Titans were born. She is the original womb, and mother of all beings
Choreographed and produced by artistic director Adrianna Yanuziello, Gaia is a story about the female experience told through the bodies of five powerful dancers.
Inspired by the works of Brazilian choreographers Irineu Nogueira & Rosangela Silvestre comes forth a journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and self-love. It’s the story about breaking the person we’re told we’re supposed to be and finding the courage to stand in who we are.
The show features a live musical cast of brilliant musicians such as Brazilian drummer and vocalist Aline Morales with arrangements by bassist Rich Brown and Brazilian artists Alysson Bruno, Maninho Costa, Lucas Cirillo, and Fabio Leandro da Silva.
