Navaratri Festival Dance Performance: Malavika Sarukkai: “Rasamanjari”

From Andrew Chatfield:

“One of the greatest dancers of our day.” —The New York Times

Acclaimed dancer Malavika Sarukkai’s choreographic interpretations have the incandescent beauty of the classical dance language of India and the energized articulation of a contemporary mind. At Wesleyan, Ms. Sarukkai presents the Connecticut premiere of “Rasamajari,” both a cerebration and a celebration of this tradition. Through this exploration, the language of Bharata Natyam is repossessed, making it in the process a language which “speaks in the present tense” for a global audience.

This event is part of the 38th annual Navaratri Festival at Wesleyan.
