Ragamala Rooted: Multidisciplinary
In Written in Water, Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy explore the concept of spiritual ascension through the age-old Indian board game Paramapadam (a precursor to Snakes and Ladders). In the creation of Written in Water, the dancers played Paramapadam hundreds of times, using their studio floor as the board.
For this event, we invite you to play Paramapadam at the Flint Hills Children’s Festival—including large-scale boards taped out on the floor of the Ordway—and to delve into the moral and psychological implications of the game.
