Since 2009, the Zikr Dance Ensemble has presented original works of dance that fuse ancient cultural rituals with contemporary dance and theater realizations. Stunning visual effects and projections complement live performances, featuring an international roster of world class dance artists, creating multimedia experiences that are artistically stimulating and intellectually captivating.
Conceived and choreographed by Zikr founder and artistic director David Taylor, Lifting the Veil features breathtaking film projections and digital graphic effects created by cutting-edge visual artist Travis Powell from Deep Space Drive-In and a stunning set design by internationally acclaimed visual artist George Peters. The program also will include encore performances of Zikr’s critically acclaimed Oracle, which will feature a new set by designer Jeff Rusnak, and Runes.
“Taylor brings these metaphysical forces down to earth in an enrapturing choreographical tale of a young girl who was abused, and finds no satisfaction in her relationships, two with males and one with another female. Higher beings/spirit guides/guardian angels are trying to help her release the pain. In describing this story, Taylor points out that despite the personal and collective pain we experience, which enforces a dualistic view of life, these higher forces are always at work, providing lessons, if we’re willing to hear them.” Bob Bows, Colorado Drama
