Eva‘s performance of a Margam, a repertoire of Bharatanatyam choreographies, marks the completion of her training under Rajyashree Ramesh. The experimental movement analytic, cognitive-emotional approach used here reflects a process of translation and transformation, highlighting the trans-cultural, trans-disciplinary potential of dance. Based on the performance the symposium will discuss the changing historicity of Indian dance with invited international dance practitioners and scholars from diverse backgrounds.
