Ashwini Ramaswamy: Let the Crows Come

Dance, Film, Speakers

It was only a matter of time before Minneapolis-based Bharatanatyam dancer and choreographer Ashwini Ramaswamy, one-third of the innovative Ramaswamys behind Ragamala Dance, stepped out on her own. The bright star in the midst of sister Aparna’s commanding sensuality and mother Ranee’s gorgeous gravitas, Ashwini has been lauded by none other than the New York Times for performances that combine “the human and the divine.” For this work-in-progress, an SPCO Liquid Music Series commission, she teams up with composer/DJ/author Jace Clayton and fiercely poetic dancer Alanna Morris-Van Tassel to explore ancestry, ritual, and tradition. See video of Ramaswamy’s Space Residency at the Baryshnikov Arts Center this Monday at Parkway. TU Dance co-founder Toni Pierce-Sands facilitates a post-screening conversation.
