INDO-AMERICAN ARTS COUNCIL PRESENTS ITS ANNUAL OUTDOOR ERASING BORDERS FESTIVAL OF INDIAN DANCE
The Indo-American Arts Council brings Erasing Borders Festival of Indian dance that translates traditional and contemproary Indian dance into New York's vibrant landscape annually. The festival showcases different dance forms - classical and experimental, showcasing a melange of tradition with the modern.
Now in its 7th year, this exciting festival continues to promote Indian dance, produced and performed in India and abroad. These internationally recognized dancers are an eclectic mix, having previously approached dance from both performance and academic standpoints. They have successfully established themselves as pioneers of modern dance and preservers of traditional forms.
The year's line-up is exceptionally talented. It includes celebrated Kathak dancer, choreographer and researcher Sanjukta Sinha, who has trained under the legendary Kumudini Lakhia. Prabal Gupta, a versatile Kathakali performer and research scholar who specializes in Keezhupadam and performs both Purusha Vesham and Stree Vesham, is also a part of the festival. One of our solo artists, Dr. Yamini Saripalli is an internationally acclaimed Kuchipudi performer who has also studied Karnatic classical music. She is known for propagating interest in this ancient dance form through her performances and teaching.
The festival is free and will be held outdoors, in New York City's Wagner park on August 20th 2014 from 6 to 8pm.
