Blessed Unrest

Monica Shah/Choreography by Natasha Bakht

Vancouver/Ottawa

Western Canadian Premiere

A solo work utilizing contemporary expressions of Indian classical dance to explore “blessed unrest” – a feeling of restlessness that drives us forward and pushes us beyond boundaries. Often in our busy lives, we engage in a constant cycle of activity; a ritual that is both frenzied and sacred.  While daunting in its feverish pace, there is a sense of peace in the continual flow of movement.

Performer: Monica Shah

Music: Alexander MacSween (original composition), Christina Petrowska Quilico – Glass Houses (pre-recorded piano composition)

Lighting Design: Arun Srinivasan

Costume Design: Helen Rainbird
