Update (July 25)

We're in final rehearsals now and will leave for our The Wild Divine Mexico Tour in less than a week!

Thanks so much to all who have generously donated so far. We still need your help to reach our goal  -- please consider a gift during this final week! Thank you for your support.


Thanks to your constant and beautiful support, The Wild Divine is going on tour to Mexico THIS summer, and we need your support now more than ever!!

Tour Details so far:
San Luis Potosí, Mexico: July 31-August 3, 2019
The Company has been invited to participate as the closing performance of the 39TH Festival Internacional de Danza Contemporánea -Lila López- in San Luis Potosí, México, at the BEAUTIFUL Teatro de la Paz (audience capacity of 1450 people, described as one of the four most important theaters in all Mexico) this summer. We'll be performing and teaching master classes.

The Festival has been described as the "most significant dance festival of Latin America," it is also the oldest of its kind, with great prestige and tradition. It has brought companies from all over the world like Béjart Ballet Lausanne, Alonzo King LINES Ballet, BODYTRAFFIC; and Mexican companies like ANTARES DANZA CONTEMPORÁNEA, Cía. Tania Pérez-Salas, and many many others in their 39 years so that the public can enjoy first class dance performances and classes for free (if this is not the definition of generosity and kindness we don't know what it is...).

Mexico City Area
Teatro San Benito Abad - August 4, 2019
We will be performing The Wild Divine at the impressive Teatro San Benito Abad in the Mexico City area.

We are super excited and feel very grateful and honored for this noble opportunity. We'll be working really hard in the next months and will keep you posted about it. We can't wait to perform for such a noble and honorable public... There are other opportunities in our door but we need your support. Stay tuned for updates and info, and please share this amazing news, especially with the Mexican public (but with anyone, really!)!

Help spread the word!

The Boston Globe said "Beautifully danced... filled with movement of liquid flow and lush exchanges of weight... Gorgeous, inventive partnering including includes soaring dives, striking angular shapes, and lifts that cartwheel legs end over end."

Thanks again for your support.

The evening-length piece tells a story of healing unfolding as we glimpse the magical states experienced on the spiritual, mystical, and emotional journey of inner self discovery and awakening.

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
