The Zikr Dance Ensemble will present “Runes” on the stage of the Wright Opera House. This year’s program is a focus on the ancient magical northern European alphabet as it was used in its symbolic form for divination and prophecy. This stunning work will feature the use of a cyr wheel, along with a breathtaking set of monolithic structures.
Also on the program will be one of the most intriguing and historic samples of the Gurdjieff Sacred Movements, a 2000 year old work entitled “The Assyrian Woman Mourners”, along with the Zikr Dance Ensemble’s signature work and audience favorite, “In Your Eyes”. Zikr’s cast of international dance artists will include numerous guest artists from the Colorado Ballet along with Zac Bigbee, guest artist from Taos, New Mexico.
Zikr, under the artistic direction of Denver dance luminary David Taylor, is one of the most exciting new dance companies in Colorado and the nation.
