Suraya Hilal returns to London with a new 2 day intensive workshop in Hilal Dance.
Hilal Dance ® is the art dance based on all the creative, theatrical and educational work of Suraya Hilal. Avant-garde artist, Hilal, drawing upon her Arab/Egyptian cultural roots and her extensive research, has brought a new culture to the contemporary dance world. Hilal Dance, conceived in 2000, is now established as a complete organic system which encompasses:
- A specific Hilal bodywork, which reflects the holistic nature of the dance
- Movement centred on three concepts: Pendulum, Scissors and Spiral
- A choreographic language system that is rooted in the Arab/Egyptian culture yet expands into a contemporary idiom
- An expressive style inspired by Arab aesthetics, and guided by the concept of harmony of opposites and the balance of creative energy.
