DAKA in Whidbey Island

This weekend, April 24th to the 25th, DAKA was invited to perform as part as the Dance & Choreography Showcase 2009 organized by Whidbey Island Dance Theatre.
We were invited to perform our last production
I never made a mix tape vol2.
In that show Devin McDermott, Katherine Riggs (DAKA members) and David Lawrence were invited to perform Twyla Tharp's Fugue.

The show was really exciting and trilling. The young performers of Whidbey Island Dance Theatre demonstrated incredible talent and performance capability, it was precious to share the stage with them.

I was invited to teach a warm up class, which was really fun.

Alice Gosti has created 2times3 by merging two of her award winning dances, WonderBra (2007) and 3 (2008), into one transporting piece. The women in the world of 2times3 move in space, each woman dealing with the questions her life presents. Gosti focuses on creating a multi-sensorial world/atmosphere in which the movement performed is aimed at moving the viewers in a motional and emotional way. The performers are Devin McDermott, Shannon Narasimhan, Anh Nguyen, Rachel Randall, and Katherine Riggs.
