University of Hawai‘i Presents Ragamala Dance Company in "They Rose at Dawn"

Saturday, March 11, 2017 • 7:30pm

UHM Orvis Auditorium

“Soulful, imaginative and rhythmically contagious. . . providing some of the most transcendent experiences that dance has to offer.” �"The New York Times

Described as “thrillingly three-dimensional . . . rapturous and profound” (The New York Times) and selected as one of Dance Magazine’s 25 to Watch for 2010, Aparna Ramaswamy performs in the solo work, “They Rose at Dawn.” In this stunning piece, women are depicted as carriers of ritual. Navigating inner and outer worlds, they invoke a sense of reverence, of unfolding mystery, of imagination. A stellar Carnatic musical ensemble accompanies Aparna Ramaswamy as she explores the spontaneous interplay between music and movement and the dynamic contours created by the artists onstage.

Imbuing the South Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam with a thoroughly contemporary exuberance and their “visionary approach to an ancient art form,” (Dance Magazine), Ragamala explores the dynamic tension between the ancestral and the contemporary, making dance landscapes that dwell in opposition�"secular and spiritual life, inner and outer worlds, the human and the natural, rhythm and stillness�"to find the transcendence that lies in between.
