For most, yoga sessions are a chakra-aligning release from tension demons. But in the peculiar world of Tripsichore, those same postures are used to further the evolution of modern dance.
These intricately choreographed vignettes harness the talents of lifelong yogis, like Tripsichore Yoga Theatre founder Edward Clark. He and his troupe balance on top of one another, folding and unfolding themselves. Soon youre no longer watching an inverted sun salutation; youre engrossed in a story where organisms blend together only to break back apart. Its engaging, playful, and terribly fluid. Its also a one-night gig. To see this foible-free human kaleidoscope, youll want to be at ArtServes auditorium (1350 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, ticket in hand.
If youd like to learn how they do it, workshops run from Friday through Sunday at Red Pearl Yoga (918 NE 20th Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Tickets can be purchased at redpearlyoga.com. Saturdays performance is $20 in advance or $25 at the door (door sales are cash only).
