Wendy Jehlen’s (FY04 MCC Choreography Finalist) latest choreographic work FOREST combines elements from Brazilian Capoeira, South Indian martial arts, West African dance and Contemporary dance. Her company ANIKAI Dance will present FOREST this weekend. If these images are any indication, this performance promises to evoke the unpredictable nature of a forest and its abundance, vitality, sensuality and life-giving source.
FOREST has been created, in part, during a Dance Residency at the Boston Center for the Arts.
