Ode to NavarathrI
A new work in the spirit of the South Indian festival Navarathri Kolu that uniquely combines community engagement, performance, and the opportunity for your community to share your own local talent.
The enigma of night - which conceals and liberates, frightens and absolves - is the universe of Nocturne. This work conjures the instinctive self, the emotional self, and the spiritual self that are hidden by the day and allowed to surface when the sun sets.
Performed with recorded music, this work can be performed to accommodate a range of venues.
Ragamala Dance Company's signature work which explores themes of harmony and respect for the earth, Sacred Earth explores the interconnectedness between human emotions and the environment that shapes them. Inspired by the philosophies behind the ephemeral arts of kolam and Warli painting and the Tamil Sangam literature of India, Sacred Earth is Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy’s singular vision of the beautiful, fragile relationship between nature and man.
Performed with live music and projections.
Ragamala has an enduring reputation for innovative community engagement activities, tailored to individual venues and sites. Activities will be customized for your audience’s experience level and desired activity level. Possible locations and partners could include schools, universities, museums, libraries, senior centers, hospitals, places of worship, and workplaces.
All performances include at least one day of community engagement.
