On June 4, 2014 at 1:30 PM at its Visual and Performing Arts Center, De Anza College will host a performance of Mosaic, a dance concert by dance company MoveSpeakSpin and choreographer Karl Schaffer about peace, justice, culture, and conflict in the Middle East. The concert is sponsored by the De Anza College Institute for Community and Civic Engagement and the Office of Equity, Social Justice, and Multicultural Education (OESJME) and admission is free. The performance will be followed by a discussion with the dancers led by OESJME Director Veronica Neal. The title refers to the range of subjects that inspired the choreography, from the Palestinian/Israeli struggle to the mosaic tilings common in Middle Eastern art, and included are several dances set to Jewish Diaspora and Arabic folk songs recorded by Santa Cruz world music group Zambra. The mathematics of Islamic tiling designs will be portrayed through live “video tessellations,” or video mosaics, of dancers.
