Your Artistic Background/Mission
Parijat Desai Dance Company performs a hybrid of contemporary and Indian classical dance, which the New York Times has called a “seamless blending of the new and old.” The Los Angeles Times described PDDC as “offering clean, crisp, rhythmic attacks … fresh and vibrant” and “matching technical sophistication with thematic relevance.” Choreographer and Artistic Director Parijat Desai brings together the sculptural lines, intricate rhythms and theatricality of Indian classical dance with the dynamism and experimentation of modern dance. Creating new vocabularies that move across boundaries of tradition and culture, Desai evolves a new South Asian American dance, but also reflects the intersections of culture that we all experience, challenging the notion of "us versus them."
Your Creative Influences
American modern dance, postmodern dance, bharata natyam, yoga, martial arts
