ISLAMIC CULTURAL CENTER FOR DANCE AND PERFORMANCE
zurich, switzerland \ spring 2010
The approach taken in this studio was one of research and cultural study. Ackowledging the recent controversial vote in Switzerland banning the construction of minarets, I spent the first half of the semester studying the Mosque of Cordoba, Spain. Following this initial study, a further interest was taken into a particular field of the Muslim culture: dance. Considering the history of dance within the Muslim culture, an extra sense of sensitivity and respect was taken into account with a topic of such magnitude.
