|Course Cluster: Southern Asia Studies|
This course will focus on gaining an understanding of the juxtaposition of the classicism of Bharata Natyam against its various manifestations in post modern culture. We will foster an understanding of the role, function, and imaging of Bharata Natyam dance in its traditional and contemporary contexts. The course assumes no prior knowledge of Bharata Natyam and assumes no prior facility and study of any movement language above its introductory level. We will focus mainly on studio participation, preparing students as performers and scholars.
