GDT Bollywood Workshop Saturday January 19, 2013





Gateway Dance Theatre (GDT), a nonprofit community-based organization dedicated to advancing an arts movement in Iowa, has created a new dance suite "Tapestry".

It is a unique and innovative collection of five pieces exploring the beauty and meaning of different textiles that have been used through the ages. Tapestry showcases a variety of music, including a piece by Iowa composer Paul Micich’s Emmy-winning band, “World Port.” The themes of the Tapestry performance range from rituals to fashion, and texture to textile design -- all imbibed with a sense of tradition as well as modernity.

The Tapestry dance suite provides a framework for discussions on textiles, textile art and textile-related narratives, delving into global history, cultural studies, and economic issues.
