Denver’s critically acclaimed Zikr Dance Ensemble presents “Mysteries, Rites & Revelations”, featuring the company’s premiere of Mobile, a “fascinating, striking, [and] exquisitely conceived” masterpiece of modern dance.(San Francisco Chronicle)
Choreographed in 1969 by Tomm Ruud, former dancer and choreographer with Ballet West and San Francisco Ballet, Mobile is a ballet for three dancers who move in slow parallelograms to the music of Adam Khachaturian’s Adagio from the Gayne Suite. According to Blake A. Samson of Fine Arts News Service, “the sheer engineering feat of Mobile is reason to see it time and time again.”
Mobile has been staged for over 20 major ballet companies in the United States by Ruud’s son, Christopher Ruud, who currently serves as the Director of Kansas City Ballet’s Second Company.
Zikr Dance Ensemble is honored to be selected to have the ballet now included in its repertoire.
“Mysteries, Rites & Revelations” also features excerpts from Portals, Zikr Artistic Director David Taylor’s critically acclaimed visionary work based on dance rituals in other dimensions, as well as a newly expanded version of Sadhu which explores the enigmatic holy men of India and Nepal to the pulsating music of Philip Glass, and Vespers, a beautiful work for five women that celebrates the evening prayer of thanksgiving and most important part of the Catholic Liturgy of the Hours.
