AUTHOR TALK AND PERFORMANCE FROM ANJALI DUVA

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Join Anjali Mitter Duva, author of the historical novel Faint Promise of Rain for a journey to 16th century Rajasthan, India. Based on her travels to that desert region and on her study of kathak dance, a classical storytelling art that blends both Hindu and Muslim traditions and aesthetics, Anjali will tell the story of this classical art form as it traveled through India’s tumultuous history, mirroring the region’s own story as the dance was performed by Hindu temple women, then Muslim courtesans, then residents of red light districts, and finally by artists on the international stage. Anjali will include a short kathak dance demonstration, and books will be available for sale and signing.
