Arts & culture, every day.



The Touring Artist Series Weekend Two: Vashti Dance & Sri Sai Dance Academy

Friday, June 17 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

VashtiDance Theater:  Embodying Legacy explores the acts of resistance against muting cultural identity embodied as gems of memory in African-American music and dance traditions. This work explores the continuance of legacy and cultural identity in somatic and sonic translation, enveloping the sacred within the secular and radically remaining authentic amidst the pressure of societal standardization.  

ā€‹

Sri Sai Dance Academy: The scintillating rhythms and melodies of T. S. Gopal's compositions are explored through the language of Kuchipudi dance - vibrant footwork patterns, delicate gestures, divine expressions, and its characteristic dramatic flair - including dancing on the rims of a brass plate!  Choreographer J. Sarada and her troupe of performers brings her father's music to life in movement.
