Inspired by the musical sounds of the ancient Silk Road trade routes and Gary Chapman’s five “love languages,” Habibi traces the communication of love between friends, lovers and family 
— fusing the sounds of the east with dance of the west. The dancers perform to traditional Hebrew song, as well as music by Yo Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, Timberland, Hassaon 
Hakmoun, Ahmed Qawala, Lata Mangeshkar and Shades of Black.

Under the Artistic Direction of Shawn Short, Dissonance Dance Theatre was named “one of the 11 small-but-mighty dance companies outside of LA and NYC” by Dance Spirit Magazine. Since its inception in 2007, Dissonance’s repertoire evokes emotional experiences in audiences with a blend of ballet and modern styles.
