Rewiring Bharata Natyam for the 21st Century

Lecture & Demonstration by Choreographer Parijat Desai

Choreographer Parijat Desai will describe the classic rhythmic composition (jathi), the sculptural positions of steps, and the abhinaya or gesture and facial storytelling forms of bharata natyam classical Indian dance, and how she rewires them using contemporary dance technique.

Accompanied by local musicians Aaron Paige and Priya Hariharan, this extraordinary, New York-based choreographer and dancer will share a few Krishna stories and present a new dance to a familiar song!

Followed by the Asian Art Association’s Holiday Party: Have a drink, eat a little, chat with the artist, and catch up with old friends!

Doors open at 6 pm.

Tickets are free for Asian Art Association members, $15 others.
