Learn Classic Dances from Hindu Monasteries
October 7, 11:30 am
In this workshop, Madhusmita Bora, a performer of Sattriya Dance Company, takes you on a journey through a 600 year old dance tradition. This dance was preserved, nourished, and practiced by monks in a little island in Northeast India until recently.
You will be exposed to stories from Hindu mythology through the dance and will learn about the monks and their lives.
There will be masks, costumes and props on display. Along the way, Madhusmita will lead the residents in movement exercises while learning related vocabulary of this ancient Indian tradition.
