What dance styles are being fused?

Transcultural fusion dance (heavily influenced by stylizations from Rachel Brice, Mardi Love and Zoe Jakes), with Modern elements from Isadora Duncan

Artist Statement:

I, Heather of Variat Dance Company, created this piece as a homage to my academic background and love of studying Ancient Greek and Roman art and literature. I combined this with transcultural fusion dance and blended inspirations from modern dancer Isadora Duncan’s work through a reimagining of flowing through poses and shapes with a fusion belly dance lens. It is not meant to be a historical recreation rather meant to evoke and honor the influences art and history have in dance and expressions today.
