Ragamala Dance Company: Fires of Varanasi
Co-commissioned by the Hop, Fires of Varanasi: Dance of the Eternal Pilgrim is an immersive dance performance that expands upon the birth-death-rebirth continuum in Hindu thought to honor immigrant experiences of life and death in the diaspora. Created by the Ragamala artistic directors and mother-daughter team Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, Fires of Varanasi was developed in part during a multi-residency at the Hop which started in 2018. Performed by ten dancers with an original, recorded score, French scenic and lighting designer Willy Cessa transforms the stage into the holy site of Varanasi, India, with performers traversing the iconic stairways and landings along the river banks and performing ritual ablutions in the sacred river.
Time: Friday, September 17, 7:30; Saturday, September 18, 2:00 and 7:30 PM
