Ragamala Dance Company: Written in Water

Saturday, November 3, 2018, 7:30 PM


Under the direction of Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy, Ragamala Dance Company engages the dynamic tension between the ancestral and the personal. In "Written in Water," the dancers activate the space by negotiating snakes and ladders -- which represent the heights of ecstasy and depths of longing in Hindu and Sufi thought -- to connect the human with the transcendent and reveal mysteries within the self. Forging new artistic paradigms, Ragamala brings together internationally-celebrated musicians: composer Amir ElSaffar leads a musical ensemble with a distinct alchemy of Iraqi, jazz, and Carnatic instruments; and V. Keshav's lush paintings are projected onto the stage to create a mythic. Sponsored by Mayo Clinic Dolores Jean Lavins Center for Humanities in Medicine with generous support from the Fuad Mansour fund. RSVP to: humanitiesrochester@mayo.edu
