This performance and discussion introduces various styles of dance—from classical to folk to Bollywood—from the Indian subcontinent as represented in the local South Asian dance diaspora. It features multi-generational dancers from Maryland and explores questions about intergenerational transmission and maintenance and development of cultural heritage, such as What remains? What is sometimes lost? What gets further enriched in the entire process? Curated by dancer, choreographer, singer Shobha Subramanian, Jayamangala. Part of the Asian Arts & Culture Center's Creative Confluence season, co-presented with the Motor House.
