Join us for an enchanted evening of dance at Haverford College’s Marshall Auditorium that will include Daniel Singh’s signature fusion work “Vasanth,” a piece that premiered to critical acclaim at Kennedy Center’s Maximum India Festival in 2011 and depicts the Indian myth of how spring comes to earth. Singh also shares the new piece “Since You’ve Asked,” a tender duet for two men drawing on his gestural, lyrical work and uses the poetry of Leonard Cohen and Jacques Brel’s signature “Ne Me Quitte Pas” as the musical score. Aniruddh Vasudevan, a Bharata Natyam dancer based in India and Singh’s long-time collaborator joins Dakshina as a guest artist for this performance.

This tour of Dakshina is co-presented by Asian Arts Initiative and the Office of Multicultural Affairs at Haverford College and made possible with support from the Students’ Council at Haverford College, the National Performance Network (NPN) Performance Residency Program and a grant from Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
