Nejla Yatkin Returns and She's Looking for Dancers!
Choreographer Nejla Yatkin is teaching a week long workshop at the end of November which will also serve as an audition for dancers who wish to be considered for a February 2010 performance of her work, “Salome’s Daughters.”
Nov 30, 2009 - Dec 4, 2009; Mon - Fri
Tech & Rep: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Nejla claims to draw inspiration from three sources:
-The human body as instrument: “The movement of the human body lies at the core of our existence and it has done so since the birth of humanity, predating even speech as a means of expression.”
-The dances and dancers of the past: She is interested in “resurrecting and re-exploring dance at the roots.”
-Her own diverse heritage and surroundings: a child of Turkish and Egyptian decent, Nejla was born and raised in Germany and currently resides in the United States.
