Gaviota (Seagull)

Gaviota (Seagull)

GAVIOTA (Seagull)

A performing arts interpretation based on the magical and philosophical story about the real importance of life and self perfection,  "Jonathan Livingston Seagull” written by Richard Bach.

This book is a song for spirits who have lived so long and so quietly by themselves.
Jonathan Seagull is a story for one who knows that somewhere there’s a higher way of living than scuffing the tracks of others, someone who yearns to fly the way their own heart yearns to fly.

It’s a reminder, this little fable, that the path for us to follow is already written within, that it's for each of us to find our own loves, and live them brightly for ourselves. Others may watch, they may admire our resolution or despise it, but our one freedom is for us to love and to choose every day of our lives, as we wish.

    Back to Events Page

    Join us as we end another amazing year with a unique evening of dance. The Latin Ballet of Virginia (LBV) and Ezibu Muntu African Dance Company will bring their unique culturally influenced styles and companies to entertain and enlighten you. Both companies are based in Richmond and reflect the exceptional depth, variety, and diversity of our arts and culture community.

    From the passionate fury of flamenco to tango’s forbidden heat, the polished elegance of classical ballet to the earthen power of modern dance, the Latin Ballet of Virginia uses the expressive beauty of movement to weave the tales and traditions that are the heart and soul of Hispanic culture. The Latin Ballet of Virginia (LBV) combines technical excellence with a soulful depth of emotion and an unwavering commitment to education, diversity and accessibility.

    Ezibu Muntu African Dance and Cultural Foundation is a professional organization of dancers, drummers, entertainers and other individuals dedicated to invoking a better educated positive understanding of African culture, values, traditions and cultural arts as a whole. Through exposing the community-at-large to educational and artistic programming based on African culture and art forms, Ezibu Muntu hopes to enrich the diversity of the community and reintroduce basic African concepts of family and community into society.
