Hidden by the Moon - Description
Join Naimah for her 2 hour Hidden by the Moon workshop!
Often when we perform, our emotions hide behind choreography and technique. In the workshop we will undergo an emotional transformation using the concept of “tarab”.
Tarab is that indescribable feeling we get when we listen to music that amplifies our emotions, particularly with traditional forms of Arabic music. While Tarab is a deeply personal experience, we will use a particular song as an example to highlight techniques used to convey these feelings and stories through movement.
We will apply this to music we regularly listen to that bring us strong feelings of joy and pleasure.
