Masters of Georgian Dance
November 10 at 5:00 p.m.
Gelsey Kirkland Center for the Arts
29 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY
Stars of the very best Georgian dance ensembles – Sukhishvili, Rustavi, Erisioni, Fire of Anatolia – perform their spectacular and stunningly beautiful dances under the banner of Brooklyn’s Dancing Crane Georgian Dance Ensemble. Georgian dancers are renowned for their sophisticated technique, unique dance style, and perfect execution of the most complex dance moves so that they look effortless. You will not be disappointed in this group.
The intimacy of the Gelsey Kirkland Academy theater space will give a rare experience of unity with these performers. The dancers will be joined by the equally virtuoso singers of the Georgian men’s choir and the Magnolia women’s trio, whose appearances throughout New York have excited audiences with the beauty and power of Georgian traditional songs.
The evening will begin with a dance panel discussion-demonstration led by Dancing Crane’s president Victor Sirelson with Kamala Cesar of Lotus Arts, Elissaveta Iordanova of Gorana Arts, master Georgian dancers and other prominent dance specialists exploring characteristics of Georgian dance from the perspective of a dancer. What is distinctive in a Georgian dance and in a Georgian dancer?
