Islene Pinder Announces Bali Tour 2010

Bali. Here we come! Founding Director Islene Pinder announces that BALAM Dance Theatre will undertake a full company tour in Bali this summer from July 26-September 2. Artistic Director Carlos Fittante and the company’s dancers/artists--Toshinori Hamada, Shelley Lynne Cummins, and Robin Gilbert--will once again collaborate and perform with the renowned Semara Ratih Gamelan of Ubud under the directorship of Anom Putra.

So far, at least four performances in four different villages have been lined up and coincide with Bali’s festivities honoring Indonesian Independence Day, officially observed on August 17. Large audiences of Balinese residents and tourists will be moved by BALAM’s cutting-edge, Balinese inspired repertoire.

Bali is a magical place, where synchronicity and the unexpected happen daily! Experience the interactions, stresses and laughter with us by visiting our blog, Facebook page, and web site regularly, where you will see our Bali photo journal, video footage from rehearsals, and get sneak peaks about the pieces to be premiered.
