When the four elements of earth, fire, air, and water come together, the fifth - AKASHA (the Sanskrit word for ether) is created. The elements are woven into a 70 minute program showcasing IONA's fusion of Western modern dance and Japanese butoh with aerial dance and stunning costumes. 'Akasha' seamlessly incorporates video and animation footage with live dancers on stage to create a larger than life effect that celebrates our human connection to nature.
A garden comes to life, fire dancers ignite the stage with their ritualistic rhythms and then disappear from view as ultra violet fabrics and ribbons fill the stage. Stay tuned to the site for video coming soon or add your name to our mailing list and we'll keep you informed with IONA updates.
