Senses That Sin is a multidisciplinary art installation which includes three art dolls, two rabbits, one live doll, one accordion player, and a live performance.
In the live performance, you will experience Indigo coming alive for the first time, as she grows more and more enchanted by her senses as they are each awakened one by one by Del Rivera. Will her fellow art dolls Lilac Rose and Ms. Boutika watch in amazement as they hope that their time shall also come when they will be woken up!?! To watch the live performance please click on the video, and on the link to the page on my website to learn more about the performers Namchi Bazar and Del Riveria.
I took my inspiration for this exotic/erotic experience from flowers and their lush surroundings that can tickle our senses when we allow ourselves to fully enjoy their offering.
Meet the Performers:
Namchi Bazar started her training at the Royal Vancouver Ballet Academy, followed by years in the Arts Umbrella Youth Dance Company and training at the West Coast Ballet Institute with special tutelage under Crystal Pite. Namchi completed her BFA in Contemporary Dance from Concordia University and pursued a career as an independent choreographer and performer, pioneering some experimental venues and performances, including Piss in the Pool with Sasha Kleinplatz, Andrew Tay and Dana Michel. Namchi has also dabbled in the wonders of circus performance with special events for Cirque du Soleil. She also spent years studying different types of Classical Indian folk dance styles of Rajasthan. Namchi developed her love for collaborative projects and continued to forge new pathways in Indo-fusion dance aesthetics, working with diverse artists and mediums including Beats Without Borders, Adam Shaikh, and Tarun Nayar. She has most recently worked with Meinsje Vlaming and the Dream Caravan from Cortes Island, BC with elements of flamenco, gypsy, belly dance, and theatrical circus arts.
Del Riveria is a man of few words but of serious talent! He has collaborated with Laura Balducci on her last few art installations, The Stuffy Collection and The Other-Side presents That Wall, gracing them with his accordion improv. Del also plays with The Slim Milky Band from Powell River and The Improv Choir… Singer, songwriter, composer, accordionist/pianist, actor, impresario, busker, improviser and (from an early age) parade instigator, Del Rivera is a performance artist extraordinaire!
