MOVING BEYOND FORM: Explorations in Rhythm & Storytelling in Classical & Contemporary Indian Dance
For two days, on one stage, MOVING BEYOND FORM brings together three distinctly different choreographers and ensembles -- ANNELIZE MACHADO, THE POST NATYAM COLLECTIVE, and Philadelphia's very own URMIKA DEVI DANCE COLLECTIVE -- exploring the boundaries of contemporary culture through works inspired by modern dance, ballet, yoga, martial arts, and the classical Indian dance forms of Bharata Natyam, Kuchipudi, and Kathak.
URMIKA DEVI DANCE COLLECTIVE (Philadelphia) premieres IN DREAMS, a touching three-act story of family and migration as a mother and daughter weave between dream and reality, shifting between elaborate costumes and a set evoking the Indian home left behind for New York City.
ANNELIZE MACHADO (Texas) premieres INTERSECTIONS, a solo work on journey and ritual.
THE POST NATYAM COLLECTIVE (California and Kansas) presents TIME OUT, a series of pieces in which the collective members stamp out unconventional cross-rhythms, vocalize beats, and retell stories with their fingertips.
