Out and About: Pallabi Chakravorty lecture at Emory University (10/17 @7PM)

If you’re in the Atlanta area, join Pallabi Chakravorty at Emory University on Thursday, October 17th at 7PM for a guest lecture/performance “Beyond the Body: Emotions in Kathak Dance” (Sponsored by the Department of Religion and the Department of Middle East and South Asian Studies, Emory University).

This presentation will use live performance and scholarly explorations to identify the ‘Kathak dancer’ as the seeker of love, pleasure, and devotion, both on the physical and the metaphysical realms. It will use musical genres such as thumri and tala stuctures (metrical scales from the north Indian tradition) to elucidate the idea of the dancer as seeker.
