Kaien Fusion of Fashion, Culture, and Dance seeks to bring Prince Rupert residents together in a celebration of culture and diversity. Hosted by North Coast Immigrant and Multicultural Services Society and Change Makers Education Society, this show will highlight the different people and cultures in Prince Rupert through an exposé of fashion, dance, and art.
An art show will be set up in the front foyer displaying pieces of all mediums that highlight the themes of culture, fashion, and dance. Local and regional dance groups will perform traditional cultural dances as well as contemporary dance on the mainstage. Prince Rupert residents will model local handmade fashion, wearable art, and the traditional dress of local First Nations and Immigrant groups. Kaien Fusion will provide an evening of celebration and entertainment at the Lester Centre of the Arts in Prince Rupert on April 6, 2019. The art show opens at 6pm with the dance performances and fashion show beginning at 7pm. Admission is by donation.
This is the fourth annual Kaien Fusion show. We hope to build on our previous success by opening up participation to the northern region allowing an even wider range of cultures and artists to be represented.
Last year, the show featured First Nations dance groups including the Nisga’a dance group and a multi-nation dance group. The Punjabi community presented a Bollywood fashion show and Gidha and Bhangra dances. The Friendship House submitted a group collection celebrating First Nation Designs and the fashion of contemporary designers Cecilia Grayson from Tribes and Laurie Gray of No Roads Studio, and Alexa Gamble of Mist. Karen Buchanan of Brilliant Experience displayed fashion made from recycled plastics and a contemporary dance piece exploring environmental pollution and water.
