Blue13 Dance Company, noted for rhythmic and charged performances that blend hip-hop, ballet, modern and traditional Indian dance, will share its genre-bending artistry on Friday, Feb. 21, and Saturday, Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts’ Bram Goldsmith Theater.
The 90-minute program includes the world premiere of “Terpsichore in Ghungroos,” which tackles issues of equality and feminism while celebrating joy and connection, and the West Coast premiere of “F**k Fusion.” Artistic director and choreographer Achinta S. McDaniel directed both performances.
Along with these works, McDaniel’s “Diya Aur Toofan” highlights the L.A.-based company’s theatrical contemporary style that uses dance as a vehicle for storytelling while turning the cultural stereotype of Indian dance on its head.
Tickets start at $29 to $79. The Wallis is located at 9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd. For information, call (310)746-4000 or visit thewallis.org/blue13.
