Erasing Borders: Festival of Indian Dance

The 2010 Erasing Borders: Festival of Indian Dance is surprisingly the first of its kind in New York City, with three nights of performances of “traditional and experimental, classical and post-modern Indian dance.”  Co-sponsored by the Indo-American Arts Council and the Asia Society in New York City, the festival will run from June 4-6 and will showcase several performances, panels, and workshops.  The festival will be held at the Asia Society and Museum on 725 Park Ave. (@ 70th street).  For tickets and programming information, visit: tickets.

I’m really jealous of all of you people living in the city!  It looks like it’ll be a wonderful weekend, with performances from dancers like Mythili Prakash and Prerna Deshpande, to lectures on the Mathematics of Rhythm and Talking Dance.  On a side note, how amazing is that photo up top of Navtej Singh Johar (Bharatanatyam dancer/choreographer with a yoga exponent)?  The lines and angles, the complimentary colors, the posturing – everything really came together perfectly for that photograph!

Anyway, back to the festival – here are a couple videos that’ll give you a quick glimpse of what to expect.

    My friend Parijat is in the beginning of this video clip – we went to dance camp at Yogaville together.
