Hekuras – Spirits of the Rainforest (USA)

Original Performance on April 15, 2010

2010 – Hekuras – Spirits of the Rainforest was first created in São Paulo, Brazil  (2002) with Brazilian dancers during a three-week residency.  The version presented in Washington, DC  maintained some of the thematic movement materials, the music and several of the virtual worlds from the residency in Brazil.   This performance is a shortened version of aspects of the previous work.
Hekuras – Spirits of the Rainforest (USA) was performed by six GW dancers for DanceWorks performance April 15, 2010  in Dorothy Betts Marvin Theatre in downtown Washington, DC.
Hekuras – Spirits of the Rainforest was a commission to Tania Fraga to participate in an international congress in Africa.  The Brazilian plan for participation was cancelled so the work remained as a work-in-progress, only.
