IONA CONTEMPORARY DANCE THEATRE PRESENTS
IONA Artistic Director Cheryl Flaharty has created a visual and visceral masterpiece featuring 25 dancers, LED video screens, and interactive digital animations. Dominiondemonstrates the spirit of life we share with the animals who roam our planet and our living rooms, while taking a humorous and sometimes shocking look at the foods we eat.
“The visual impact; the imagination bending symbols; the whimsy and the bone marrow darkness; and the performers– were all extraordinary.”
“Thoughtful, sad, deliriously happy, amazing, divine music, a truly purposeful presentation.”
Dominion is a beautiful and poignant example of how the arts bring awareness to social causes. The work echoes a growing concern we have in today’s world over the mistreatment and extinction of animals. The show goes a step further to examine humankind’s dominion over the food industry in the use of genetic engineering and the sourcing of new “miracle foods” that promote life.
Dominion Title Sponsor: Elizabeth Wong.
Additional support in the creation and performances of DOMINION are supported by the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts through appropriations from the Legislature of the State of Hawaii and by the National Endowment for the Arts, and the S. J. Ungar / J. Shapiro Family Foundation.
