Portal Prep Dance Program - Rabia

Practical vocational training and a spiritual journey through the study of the choreography of "Rabia" which is characterized by a unique and exceptional dance language incorporating contemporary dance and folklore.

Rabia offers a path to explore a new dance language that links the physical and the spiritual, introducing an ancient tradition filled with the energy of light and love to current contemporary dance to enable the creation of another dance.

This exploratory journey culminates in a full performance of Rabia, sharing with the audience the captivating uplifting sensation generated through this unique dance.

For dancers with modern contemporary dance and folklore backgrounds.

 

The creation of "Rabia" was inspired by Rabia al-Adawiya, the 8th century Sufi mystic woman who through love, compassion and simplicity, heralded the concept of Sufism. This dance incorporates Persian Sufi music and is dedicated to the works of Jalal al-Din Rumi, the greatest mystical poet of the 13th century.

 

"Time stops as my body becomes merely a frequency, a large vessel of water echoing with tenderness and passion. The years I had danced taught me to be discerning in my movement and confident in my pace. I want to share this with other dancers, to teach it, and to pass it on, as a language, as a way of life, allowing a relaxed stay in essence and body, joyfully rekindling the dancing spirit."

A magical journey between the old port city of Essaouira and the new world.
Dancers, the women circle, portray a unique interlocking of both tenderness and strength where each muscle is ever-present, masterfully producing melodic phrases, which naturally correlate with the music of Gnawa spiritual rituals as well as the beat of Gil Scott-Heron's spoken-word poetry.

 

"In the gap between one R'bina to the next, the song of the heart is released from the diaphragm to the extremities, and as if breaking the fourth wall there is a sense of a trance-formation all around.

A pause.
 
Emptying my soul to dance in the space created, for now."
