Dance Performance: Ashwini Ramaswamy’s Let the Crows Come
April 14, 2020
UMass Amherst Campus
Evoking mythography and ancestry, Let the Crows Come depicts crows as messengers for the living and guides for the departed. Using Bharatanatyam (south Indian classical dance) and Carnatic (south Indian classical music) as points of inspiration, creator Ashwini Ramaswamy of Ragamala Dance Company, in collaboration with musicians, dancers, and DJ Jace Clayton explores how memory and homeland channel both guidance and dislocation.
