Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Bodyspeak juxtaposes elaborate dances from different cultures, each carrying its ritual significance in the highly disciplined gestures and movements of the performers. Notions of sexual/cultural difference and prejudice are examined through techniques of cultural collision and juxtaposition. No commentary - music only.
