Ragamala Dance Company
"Thrillingly three-dimensional . . . rapturous and profound."
—The New York Times
Ragamala Dance Company`s work explores the dynamic tension between the ancestral and the contemporary. As choreographers and performers, Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy create dance landscapes that dwell in opposition — secular and spiritual life, inner and outer worlds, human and natural concerns, rhythm and stillness — to find the transcendence that lies in between.
In They Rose at Dawn 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.
