July 10 – 12, 2012 Durham, NC

Ragamala Dance’s American Dance Festival debut will feature SACRED EARTH (2011), a work inspired by two transient art forms: kolam floor drawings and Warli wall paintings. This collage of the senses uses the visual beauty on stage along with the live musical accompaniment to develop and explore the interconnectedness of humans and the vast landscapes that shape them. The ADF is a draw for the best-known names in dance. This year 16 troupes will perform there, including Paul Taylor, Mark Morris, Stephen Petronio and Pilobolus.
Post Performance Discussion: Tuesday, July 10
