Ananta, The Eternal

Doors: 7pm | Performance: 7:30pm
$0 to $25

Guggenheim Fellow and Doris Duke Award recipient Aparna Ramaswamy’s newest work – Ananta, The Eternal weaves together threads of body, memory, desire, and devotion. Sisters and acclaimed Bharatanatyam dancers/choreographers Aparna Ramaswamy and Ashwini Ramaswamy come together for their first duet performance accompanied by extraordinary live musicians from Chennai, India.

Ananta describes the eternal relationship between the deity and the devotee. The experience of beholding the image of a deity with one’s own eyes is a central act of worship and charged with meaning – it is reciprocal and electric. The sacred is present in this auspicious moment; through the meeting of the eyes, one gains the grace of the divine.

Don’t miss the world-renowned sisters of Ragamala Dance Company in a performance that has been described as “rapturous and profound” (NY Times) with “stunning virtuosity” (The Boston Globe) and “enchantingly beautiful.” (NY Times)
