EMK Moves presents Isolation
EMK Center hosted EMK Moves, 'Isolation', a dance presentation by four contemporary dancers from Dhaka on August 20 at EMK Center for Public Service and Arts.
A group of four young choreographers presented a contemporary dance exposition that was directed collectively to see what four souls unite and produce. The initiator of the performance was dancer Lamia Mela, who had previously worked with most of the dancers. The other fine young dancers were Mahabub Hossain, Mashrur Rahman and Anandita Khan.
The elements they worked with were tied to the human body through its 'isolation'. A crucial aspect as it is, the human body's inevitable choice of becoming isolated both cognitively and bodily through growth and age is a belief mostly unnoticed. Other themes explored were limitations of bodies, the point which bodies seize to commute, and the overcoming of cultural and social barriers. The dancers wanted to collectively put together their own ideas and renditions of bodily movements and provoking thoughts in a 35 minute presentation.
