Help us Build a narrative dance theatre show with live music, that celebrates our diversity, the beauty in our cultural differences, and send a message of acceptance, tolerance and unity.
I strongly believe that the way to successfully achieve this is through the universal language of live arts.
Different communities are represented by different dance styles;
Flamenco, Contemporary Indian "Katak", Hip Hop and Afro Diaspora.
Our storyline portrays diverse dance communities and touches on immigration while sending a message of acceptance and unity.
Jaṛēṁ-Roots takes you on a journey of storytelling through dance, incorporating Urban street, Flamenco, Contemporary Indian (Kathak style) and various African dance styles.
By adding live music and 3D projections this will allows the audience to truly become captivated in the richness of the cultural exchange.
Our Core Values
While supporting independent artists showcasing a multicultural experience, the show and our projects aims to encourage understanding of cultures other than your own and inspire change, acceptance and unity.
All the while contributing to the local economy.
Acceptance . Culture . Unity . Dance

"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."
The mission of the show is to build bridges between dance styles, cultures, communities across the world, and inviting local artists to promote local talent.
Our goal is to give the audience an experience, to take them on journeys filled with learning and reflection.
Collaborating with local dancers specialising in various styles is central to our touring original production.
We are continually innovating, learning new techniques to enrich our artistry and performance. Our ability to embody different styles and cultural dances resonates with us and our audiences.

and promote art with a message, a purpose."

Jarem-Roots has already travelled internationally with a concept video in Paris with critically acclaimed local artists.
A section of the piece, the afro- diaspora section, "The Lost Goddess" was also developped and premiered in Dixon Place NYC before it was toured in England as a work in progress receiving outstanding feedback and reviews.
This is only the beginning of Jaṛēṁ-Roots touching different audiences in different towns and countries.
