Jarem-Roots Celebrates Diversity and richness of all cultures
in the art of dance and music.
«... in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.»
Help us Build a narrative dance with live music, that celebrates our diversity, the beauty in our cultural differences, and sends a message of peace, and togetherness.
I strongly believe that the way to successfully achieve this is through the universal language of dance, music and the arts.
Different communities are represented by different dance styles;
Flamenco, Indian contemporary "Katak", Hip Hop and Afro Diaspora.
("Jarem-Roots" Teaser 2014)
It tells stories that showcase the interaction of diversity within communities, massive migration, and the power and strength of unity.
Accompanied by live music this allows the audience to truly become captivated in the richness of cultural exchange.
This magical journey takes you from urban street dances to Flamenco, Indian Contemporary "Katak" to African Diasporic dances.
Jarem-Roots is a dance theater production which explores and touches the evolution and history of humanity.
The message of this piece shows we are stronger unified no matter our race, background, gender, social status.
The world needs help right now, to build bridges not walls.
• To promote cultural differences
• To provide the community with a multicultural experience
• To shine a light on the suppression but excitement of individuality
• To encourage that understanding of cultures will tradestereotyping and division.
• To increase awareness of cultures in a positive light for all.
Demographics: 8 - 80 year olds.
This project will speak to dance,music and theatre specialists alike, for it covers all grounds.
• The story is told through 4 different dance styles. Dancers have to tap into their acting skills to evoke emotions not only through their movements but through their soul to make the audience believe in their journey.
MUSIC plays a huge part in thisproject because the whole show will be accompanied by live musicians who will bring to life the story. The music will marry Flamenco guitar, violins, Indian tabla drums, drum kit, DJ, bass and djembe drum.
By helping us develop this project you would support
independent artists and promote art with a message, a purpose.
