Kalangan Series | ARŪPA & Leher
Sampradaya Dance Creations is looking forward to present two contemporary Indian works, ARŪPA and Leher as part of the Kalangan Series on November 19th, 2022 at 7:00 PM.
This edition of Kalangan Series will feature ARŪPA by Sonia St-Michel and Julie Beaulieu and Leher, choreographed by Tanveer Alam.
Sonia St-Michel is a dancer, choreographer and artistic director of Sonia St-Michel Creations. She considers herself a dancer-musician; through body percussion and voice, movement goes hand in hand with sound as an all-encompassing form of expression.
Dancer, scholar, and teacher, Julie Beaulieu holds a Bachelor's degree (1996) and a Master’s degree in dance (2015) from Université du Québec à Montréal. In 2010, she co-founded Saṃskāra : les artisans du passage with the musician and scholar Jonathan Voyer. The collective’s mission is to promote transcultural dialogue through the arts.
Toronto-based Tanveer Alam is a 2019 graduate of The School of Toronto Dance Theatre. Recently, Alam has co-created In Multiplicity with Nithya Garg, presented as a part of the Independent Projects stream at Nuit Blanche (Humber Galleries).
