Performance Dates: Saturday, December 2, 8pm Sunday, December 3, 3pm Conceived and choreographed by Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy Amir ElSaffar and Prema Ramamurthy, composers Minneapolis-based Ragamala Dance Company has been lauded for bringing "a visionary approach to an ancient art form" (Dance Magazine) in its stunning productions rooted in the South Indian Bharatanatyam classical dance form. Written in Water explores the cultural complexities of the modern world through the metaphor of the ancient Indian board game Snakes and Ladders, with a live music score performed by an ensemble of four musicians, including jazz trumpeter Amir ElSaffar, known for his distinctive fusion of contemporary jazz and Iraqi maqam. #BerkeleyRADICAL #BlurringBoundaries
