The 2012 Spring of Culture festival in Manama, Bahrain features 35 events with performances by world-famous artists including Andrea Bocelli, Riham Abdul Hakim, Souad Massi, Susana Baca, and many others. On April 5, Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance presents the premiere of its Loie Fuller Celebration program. One of her era’s most influential performing artists, Loie Fuller (1862-1928) created an art form by swirling silk costumes into moving sculptural forms and illuminating them brilliantly. The company honours Fuller’s legacy in celebration of her 150th birthday, as internationally acclaimed Fuller re-interpreter and Artistic Director Jody Sperling revivifies Fuller’s spirit with brio. The program features Debussy SoireeRoman Sketches and Turbulence.
