‘Dance with the sea’ heading to the Carnaval International de Victoria

Published on : Monday, February 4, 2013

‘Dance with the sea’, a vibrant group of Mauritian artists and dancers, are heading to the Seychelles for the 2013 Carnaval International de Victoria which runs from 8th to 10th February.

The vivacious group consists of 35 participants who are trained by the Office of Tourism (MTPA).

The choreography draws inspiration from the natural ebb and flow of the sea. The movements recreate the majestic energy of the waves vigorously crashing into the coral barriers that protect the turquoise lagoons surrounding the idyllic island of Mauritius. The energetic ocean is the key focus of the ‘Dance with the sea’ group.

The ‘Dance with the Sea’ embraces the diverse and colourful culture of the Mauritian people and emphasises their unity. It also highlights Mauritius as a unique tropical destination where the beach is a languid and idyllic place of joy and healing. The natural elements of the warm sun and the sea’s cleansing salt create a revitalising environment which rejuvenates all who descend onto the seashore.

Through their art and their swings, the ‘Dance with the sea’ group will come together as one as they feel the rhythm in their souls – a core element of dance. Twirling and twisting to the sound of the Flic en Flac carnival song, which was also played at last year’s festivities, the group will bring Mauritian flare and sparkle to the Seychelles, adding to the carnival spirit and festive.

Their authentic costumes will further illustrate their culture and communicate a strong message that focuses on the sun, sand and the sparkling sea. Spectators will be transported to golden sands, waves singing in perfect harmony and the filao trees gently swaying against the cool, peaceful breeze.

‘Dance with the sea’ will represent the joy, tranquillity and energy of Mauritius and fits perfectly into the colourful and vivacious Carnaval International de Victoria. It is set to be three days filled with rhythm, culture, and romance which will charm anyone in its path.
