Persistent Voices by the Dakshina/Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company combines choreography and thought-provoking poetry to explore the effect of AIDS in our lives.

The performance is inspired by the anthology Persistent Voices: Poetry by Writers Lost to AIDS, which includes the work of eight DC poets whose lives and creativity will be celebrated through this performance.

The performance is choreographed by Daniel Phoenix Singh. The Dakshina/Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by Dance Place in partnership with Kala Vandanam Dance Company and NPN.

In the first half of the performance, Dakshina presents an excerpt that showcases Singh’s unique vision combining modern and Bharata Natyam movement. Dakshina presents a work choreographed by the esteemed danseuse Rama Vaidyanathan from India on one of Dakshina’s principal dancers Sudha Radhakrishnan.

Tickets are $15 for Reston residents; $30 for non-residents and are available online.
