Dancing the Dark Magdalene: A Meditative Performance Experience
Sunday, July 1, 2:00 PM
Enjoy and participate in a meditative dance inspired in The Dark Magdalene, a solo exhibition by artist Tanya Torres at the Bronx Music Heritage Center. In this piece interdisciplinary dance artist Corazon Tierra weaves a dance and a community meditative experience based on her responses to the paintings in the gallery. She will be accompanied by Artist-Shaman, Maria Mar, who will create meditative sounds for the dance. The dance culminates with a community experience, where everyone will be invited to sense and feel the paintings through movement and embodiment.
This new collection of paintings by Tanya explores the darkness that allows light to shine from within through her interpretation of Magdalene. Corazon will embody this sacred journey of the soul by feeling, sensing and experiencing the visual universe created by Tanya. She will offer an invitation to slow down and receive the gift of the Dark Magdalene.
