INDIAN DANCE and YOGA.. Anjali, Basia Going, Blair Miller
Arts Court Theatre, 2 Daly Ave.

PARIKRAMA: a journey in Indian Dance, Yoga, Tabla,
Indian artistic and performing arts give form to profound philosophical ideas. According to Hindu philosophy the world was both created and destroyed by the dance of Shiva/Nataraja. The small hour glass shaped drum (damaru) in Nataraja’s right hand provides the rhythm for the creation of the universe, while the fire of destruction held in his left hand is unleashed during his cataclysmic dance of destruction. The semi-circular ring of fire (tiruvasi) which surrounds the dancing Shiva emphasises the cyclical nature of the universe.
At Arts Court Theatre on 15 and 16 April, Cultural Horizons presents a show based on both philosophical and environmental themes. Three Ottawa artists, Anjali, Basia Going and Blair Miller, collaborate to create a colourful and spiritually moving experience. Inspired by the philosophy of ancient Hindu texts (Upanishads and Shiva Puranas) and based around the cyclical structure of the cosmos, Anjali (dance), Basia (yoga), and Blair (tabla) explore the symbolism of Nataraja, performing in front of exquisite images and unique video of Hindu art, temples and the dynamic scenery of the Himalayas, where Shiva performs his eternal cosmic dance.
Anjali has studied in India with some of the most famous hereditary masters. In this performance, she includes dances presented from the traditional classical Indian repertoire using innovative choreography recently presented in New Delhi, India. The show is an exploration of our relationship with the Earth and is set to the poetry of the Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore. Blair Miller (tabla) highlights Anjali’s dance in the Kathak and Sufi Dance traditions. The evening concludes with a unique collaboration between Anjali and Basia, exploring the rich mythology of the God Shiva through dance and yoga. Basia (Adishesha Yoga) is one of Ottawa’s leading yoga teachers. Blair Miller has trained and performed in India. to critical acclaim.
Indian snacks and a chance to meet the artists after the recital is included in the price of admission..."This is art without borders. Anjali and Tony [Gaston] are part of an international group of artists whose artistic expression belongs to world art. .. transnational work.. resonates with diverse audiences be they from India Canada or elsewhere.

Classical Elements: Oil Paintings by Shawn McNevin
Vernissage: April 15 at 7 pm
Galerie McKenzie Marcotte in Wakefield Qc is pleased to open its 2011 season with Classical Elements: Fire, Water, Earth and Air, an exhibition of paintings by Shawn McNevin. The vernissage takes place on Fri. April 15 at 7 pm and the exhibition will continue until May 17.
Classical Elements is in fact classic McNevin: evocative, intuitive, nuanced and masterful. In this series of paintings, the characteristics of the four elements are reflected in both the content and style of the work. The painting of a bonfire visually portrays fire but also implies the emotional qualities of energy and passion. With the Newfoundland landscape as the subject matter of most of Shawn’s paintings, the element of water in all its forms is richly explored from cloud vapour, sea water and icebergs to glaciers and rivers in the mountains. And everywhere there is the feeling air; the clarity of a distant vista or the atmospheric quality of a place where various elements meet. The works in this show suggest simultaneously the power of the elements as well the preciousness of the natural environment and this sentiment is presented with skill and sensitivity.
Galerie McKenzie Marcotte is located at 26 Sully Rd. in Wakefield Qc. For more information, please check the web site at www.mckenziemarcotte.caor call 819 459-3164
