Dancing Land Connections

Rulan Tangen, Founding Artistic Director/Choreographer of Dancing Earth, is honored to return to Vancouver from the Southwest desert where she is in residence, to share her vision with the community of Full Circle. Her work prioritizes ‘Woniya” (breath of life), the spine as link to identity and ancestral knowledge, and the intuition of body to connect to energies of the planet Through movement and sound, she explores diversity and its impact on the individual and group dynamic. She honors the innate symbolism of cultural art forms, the capacity of movement for healing, and the deep metaphors that can expressed through embodiment. Through the language of dance, participants will get a unique cultural experience to grow greater capacity for understanding for life on earth.
