Maya 2015

Choreographers: Camilea El Hakim

Maya is a dance based on the illusion of womanhood in both Indian and Moroccan cultures. Camilea El Hakim, a prolific dancer in Fes, created a three piece choreography of the idea that women are more than what is expected of them. In fact, we reveal in our final conclusion, that both cultures see them as divine. We used contemporary expression of Kuchipudi and Gnaoua traditional dances.
