Our dance genre is Bhakti Modern, a deeply felt exploration of love: love within couples, family, friends, community. Love of self and soul. Bhakti Modern draws us to the universal well of spiritual longing.

This production has an ensemble of ten dancers and eight musicians as well as lighting, set, and costume designers, visual artists, a projection specialist, photographer and videographer  -- in short, many talented artists are collaborating to create this exciting new work. Please join our community of artists, and help us to premiere our new work in Boston and to tour the work after the Boston premiere.

Your support will go to our dancers, musicians, costume designers, set and lighting designers, photographers and videographer, and all of the other crucial members of the production.  It will help cover many costs  including the theater rental, rehearsal rental space, costumes,  PR related costs. It will help with touring costs as well.

About the Deborah Abel Dance Company

The Deborah Abel Dance company has performed original work since 1987, in Massachusetts, New York, and Connecticut, as well as in New Delhi, Jaipur, and Chennai.  Her work has been described:  “the lyricism and technical acuity of Jose Limon; the primordial thrust of Martha Graham; the sculptural peregrinations of Pilobolus. And infusing it all is a sense of breath powerful as the butoh concept of (to quote Sankai Juku founder Ushio Amagatsu) ‘inward wind’-an internal force…” – The Boston Phoenix
