Description
BarberDancer

The worlds of dance and fine art are coming together at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts in a series of performances and discussions in partnership with sampad, the dynamic development agency for south Asian arts.

Artist Devika Rao will react to sculpture from Carved, Cast and Modelled, creating a Bharatanatyam-style classical south Asian dance, that will reveal the stories behind a selection of Barber bronzes. Bharatanatyam originates from Tamil Nadu in south India and was originally inspired by the sculptures and carvings of the ancient temple of Chidambaram. The performance will be followed by a discussion.
