Triskelion Arts presents the premiere of TULA, a new work for five dancers by choreographer Stefanie Nelson and composer Wendy Leigh Wilf. TULA, meaning "balance" in Sanskrit, is an evening-length work based on the chakras. As the piece progresses, the music cycles through a variety of corresponding styles including jazz, blues, and rock; the movement draws from both physical and non-physical associations with each chakra. TULA brings both performers and audience on a captivating musical and visual journey.
Featuring performers: Erik Abbott-Main, Emily Giovine, Mor Mendel, Ali Schechter, and Benjamin Wolk

The Company: Stefanie Nelson Dancegroup was established to foster and promote an appreciation of the study of the art of movement and dance; to integrate the artistic, cultural, and educational aspects of movement and dance through performances, classes, and workshops; and to promote interdisciplinary artistic collaboration among artists in all artistic disciplines.
TULA has received support from the Duke Energy Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation administered through Triskelion Arts, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New 42nd Street studios.
