Senses That Sin

Get ready, now…

Senses That Sin, A Multidisciplinary Art Installation by Laura Balducci Art. 

With a special, live performance on Friday  March 17th, Laura Balducci’s latest art installation, Sense That Sin includes three art dolls, one live doll and an accordion player. Her inspiration for this exotic/erotic experience comes from the flowers and their surroundings. A celebration of  all the lush SPRING sensuality our senses can handle — and we need that right, now! Included in this botanical debacle are two very special guests. Allow us introduce you to Namchi Bazar and Del Riveria!
 
Namchi Bazar’s impressive career started with her early training with the Royal Vancouver Ballet Academy, which was followed by years spent with the Arts Umbrella Youth Dance Company. She would then move on to more exciting 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 dabbled in the wonders of the circus arts with special performances for Cirque du Soleil. She also spent years studying different types of Classical Indian dances and folk styles from 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. Namchi has most recently worked with Meinsje Vlaming and the Dream Caravan from Cortes Island, BC who blend elements of flamenco, gypsy and belly dances with theatrical circus arts.
 

Del Riveria is a man of few words but serious talent! He has collaborated with Laura Balducci on various art installations including, 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 Riveria is a performance artist extraordinaire!
