WASHINGTON, DC: chitra.MOVES presents "TEMPLE" at Dance Place




Dance Place
3225 8th St NE
Washington, DC 20017


Saturday, March 18, 2023 - 7:00pm
Sunday, March 19, 2023 - 4:00pm




chitra.MOVES is honored to present TEMPLE at Dance Place. 


TEMPLE shines the spotlight on the fraying of public life and the growing reality that people participate in institutions less and less. Through the languages of Indian Dance and Hip Hop culture, Chitra Subramanian explores the experiences and stories of her South Asian immigrant journey through the lens of the major institutions that were powerful anchors in her life. From the Hindu Temple in Pittsburgh to the temple of the DC Club, Chitra showcases the limitless ways in which Hip Hop & dance continue to inspire and transform.

TEMPLE is a deeply family-friendly performance, geared to an intergenerational audience. Segments of the work engage the audience through one-on-one conversations with one another and even a cypher on stage, sharing original sets by some of Chitra Subramanian’s favorite DC-based DJs.

*ASL Interpretation will be available for the Saturday performance.

**Large Print Programs will be available for both performances.  

This project was supported by a National Performance Network (NPN) Artist Engagement Fund, with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency). For more information, visit www.npnweb.org.
