Barnes Takeover: Sattriya Dance Company
April 20 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
The Barnes Takeover series is back for 2019! Join us for three fresh artistic interpretations of the collection before heading into the galleries. First up this April is a performance by Madhusmita Bora and Prerona Bhuyan, cofounders of the Philadelphia-based Sattriya Dance Company. Sattriya is a 600-year-old dance tradition from northern India that celebrates Krishna. Through this dance form, Bora and Bhuyan will share stories about the impish god, drawing inspiration from paintings in the collection—mother-child portraits, nudes, and scenes with wild animals—that speak to various aspects of the deity’s life.
