Ragamala Dance Company and Brooklyn Rider: A Shared Evening

Dance, Classical

Here’s how classical lives on in contemporary art. For tonight’s performance at the O’Shaughnessy, string quartet Brooklyn Rider, first introduced to us by Liquid Music, will reimagine the restorative properties of classical music with “Healing Modes,” based on compositions by Beethoven and five contemporary women composers. Then Ashwini Ramaswamy leads her troupe, Ragamala Dance Company, in a new work she created. Titled “Nocturne,” the piece utilizes the classical Indian dance form Bharatanatyam to reimagine the relationships between the human, natural, and metaphysical migrations that occur at night.
