Under the artistic direction of Dance Department artist-in-residence Hari Krishnan, Toronto-based inDANCE presents a performance inspired by the devadasis (temple-women and courtesans) of South India. The never-before-seen repertoire blends a contemporary aesthetic with ritual and court dances from the city of Tanjavur (the cultural epicenter of nineteenth-century South India) and interprets the deeply spiritual, erotic and sensual love poetry of another time.
“Without a doubt, the choreography of Krishnan has an inspired, even genius quality to it, working creatively within and around his classical traditions…Thee effect is a lively and fresh fusion of tradition and contemporary dance, beautifully rendered by this expert dance company, inDANCE”–The Kitchener-Waterloo Record
