Orixás

Inspired by Afro-Cuban and Afro Brazilian deities, the performances represent love, pursuit, passion, and loss through the voyage of four individuals. Four strong females, four elements and four colours swirl, swoop, saunter and soar together.

This Contemporary dance piece draws on aspects of these practices along with the artists’ own experiences and interpretations. The dancers and artists involved in this work respect and value the traditional context of Orixas as sacred cultural practices.

Orixás refers to The Orishas of Yoruba mythology.
