From the far reaches of St. Petersburg, Russia and Tbilisi, Georgia, Golden Gates tours America performing masterpieces of Russian and Georgian folklore, song and dance. Contrasting elaborate lyrical suites against pulsating dances, these cultures come to life in a whirlwind of colorful costumes and exotic sounds.
This lively program presents an authentic picture of Russian and Georgian folk traditions. The dancers thrill audiences with their syncopated choreography, gymnastic leaping and explosive foot stomping. The singing includes well-known tunes such as Kalinka, as well as Cossack war dances and Siberian love chants. Georgian Coast Dance Adjaruli and Mountain Dance Mtiruli. The musicians are an exciting, acoustic trio of ethnic percussion, bayan, zhaleika and balalaikas. Program accompanied by Emcee with some information and jokes. Audience Participation GUARANTEED! Take it from the Kerr Cultural Center, “Definitely a show to see!”
