That's Not Indian Dance: Exploring Histories of Dance in India

A chasm lies between the theory and practice of dance and performance traditions in India. While traditional structures for dance education are still practised today, students often do not engage in the form’s historical and textual legacy. Reading dance has become secondary for most practitioners and, in some cases, even been abandoned. In this session, Urmimala Sarkar Munsi, co-Guest Editor (Readings on Dance: From 75 Years of Marg) speaks with Navtej Singh Johar and Sharon Lowen about bridging the gaps between academics and practitioners of dance and performance.
