Ragamala Dance Company: Sacred Earth
SEPT. 19, 2019
AT 7:30 p.m.

Sacred Earth explores the interconnectedness between human emotions and the environments that shape them. In this work, the dancers create a sacred space to honor the divinity in the natural world and the sustenance we derive from it. Inspired by the philosophies behind the ephemeral arts of kolam and Warli painting and the Tamil Sangam literature of India, Sacred Earth is Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy’s singular vision of the beautiful, fragile relationship between nature and humanity. Sacred Earth is the creation of Ragamala Dance Company, described by The New York Times as “soulful, imaginative and rhythmically contagious,” and “providing some of the most transcendent experiences that dance has to offer.”
