Let the Crows Come

Evoking potent symbolism of the crow as a messenger between life and death, transcending space and time, Ashwini Ramaswamy explores memory, dislocation, ancestry, and more in Let the Crows Come. 

Ramaswamy, who comes from a family of Bharatanatyam teachers and practitioners, remixes and recontextualizes this Indian classical dance alongside two other artists representing seemingly disparate techniques and traditions. Alanna Morris performs with an Afro-Caribbean Modern technique, and Berit Ahlgren performs using the Gaga technique developed by Ohad Naharin. 

Together, the three women illustrate the transmission of memory and ideas from person to person, generation to generation, and culture to culture: movements from Bharatanatyam dance are passed between them, transformed by each dancer's training and artistic interpretations.
