They Rose at Dawn is a full-evening solo performed by classical Bharatanatyam Indian dancer Aparna Ramaswamy, accompanied by a stellar Carnatic ensemble of musicians, which examines women as carries of ritual. Navigating inner and outer worlds, women are the primordial source of all creation; the compassionate mother; the lover, exuberant and erotic; the embodiment of power and strength. For Ramaswamy, these intergenerational conversations provide a forum to create intricate and complex worlds that convey a sense of reverence, of unfolding mystery, of imagination.View Event
