Crossing Borders in Bharatanatyam

Crossing Borders in Bharatanatyam

“I believe that dance transcends race.”

“It’s not about being Indian to be good in Indian dance”

“… how they can embrace being an Indian dancer without feeling that they are threatening their Chinese or Malay identity, because beyond that they are as Chinese and as Malay as you can be.”
 
Joseph Gonzales, Dean of Faculty of Dance at ASWARA, discusses blurring boundaries with Bharanatyam, as ASWARA stages its latest performance featuring 3 non-Indian dancers taking on one of the most popular and widely performed classical Indian dance styles.
