IN PERSON: Beyond Words: Storytelling through Indian Classical Dance

Event Description

Indian classical dance, Bharatanatyam, is admired globally for telling mythological stories. However, the Bharatanatyam dance is beyond Indian mythology—its hand gestures and head-eye-neck movements can be woven into specific feet and body movements to tell any stories, poems, or narrations.

Using illustrated examples and live demonstrations, Indian classical dancer Piyali Biswas De explores some methodologies from Classical Bharatanatyam dance to tell a story. Join Piyali and immerse yourself in the gestures and expressions that weave tales and witness a short live captivating dance performance. Ready to tell your story with Indian classical moves?
