AsiaAlive: Yoga and Classical Dance
Friday and Saturday, March 28 and 29
Free with museum admission
interactive demonstration will include an exploration of the similarities and
differences between three ancient movement art forms: Yoga, Bharatanatyam, and Kalari ppayattu. Yoga, with its physical
and spiritual practices; Bharatanatyam, with its physical, emotional and
performative practices; Kalari ppyattu, a martial art with physical and
healing practices – all three forms come from the Indian sub-continent
but have travelled across the world since the fourth century. Dr. Aparna Sindhoor and Anil Natyaveda will
discuss the intersection of these three forms of movement and the beautiful dynamic that
they create when performed and experienced together. Audiences will get an opportunity to try out
a few sections during the demonstration and also witness the beauty of these forms
demonstrated by world-renowned artists such as Sindhoor and Natyaveda.
