Museum for Art in Wood presents Nazariyā: The Dancer’s Gaze – A Guided Tour of The Mashrabiya Project
Join the Museum for Art in Wood for an evening with Usiloquy Dance Designs for a magical tour of The Mashrabiya Project: Seeing Through Space. During the tour, dancers will take over the exhibition gallery with creative agency, responding to individual works while expanding on the direct and implied interpretations of the exhibition through the South Asian dance style Bharatantyam. Usiloquy applies this Indian classical dance as a choreographic language to tell universal stories and explore lesser-known cultural aspects of diasporas and communities. The choreography for this event, developed by Shaily Dadiala, ranges from pieces in praise of a lotus-eyed goddess to 15th-century poet Kabir’s call to seek the divine within, culminating in a joyful and exuberantly rhythmic finale.
Nazariyā will be performed exclusively at the Museum for Art in Wood. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity to view an interactive, choreographed response to The Mashrabiya Project: Seeing through Space, offered one night only!
