Boston Center for the Arts Dance Residency features Navarasa Dance Theater in My Dear Muddu Palani and other New Works by Aparna Sindhoor and Anil Natyaveda. My Dear Muddu Palani will explore sensuality through literature and performance based on work written by Muddu Palani in the 18th century. The piece will challenge the way women’s bodies are viewed in modern societies both in the east and the west.

Inspired by Indian classical and folk dance forms, Navarasa Dance Theater weaves together dance, singing, Kalari ppayattu (Indian martial art), and original music to create multilayered, multilingual performances.

Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes with one intermission.
