Rani Art & Teun Seuren
For the new production 'Q5~The Quintessentals' by Sarada Sarita ,Rani Art and upcoming succesful and most of all talented fashion designer Teun Seuren colloborated to create a 7 piece costume collection. Inspired by the 7 chakra's and different cultural heritages , this colourful collection has enhanced the dancers, staging and story of the first Waacking theatre performance!
Q5 is inspired by the energy, feeling and expressiveness of Waacking; also known as Whacking or Punking & Posing. A dance form that was born in the seventies in the Latin and Afro-American LGBTQI+ underground clubs of Los Angeles as an expression of oppression, celebrating all! Through the movement language of Waacking, the Performers dive into different worlds and perspectives searching for the essence of the essence in full colors > The Quintessentials!

The 3 female dancers symbolically portray the three modes of material nature based on the Bhagavad Gita: Goodness, Passion and Ignorance. They also represent the three most important strengths of the female body: Fertility, Flexibility and Beauty.
