UCLA WACD faculty presenting at "Bells of Change - Film and Contemporary Performance from India" - UCSB Jan.16, 2015


We are delighted to be able to bring together internationally recognized artists and scholars, both to the main stage and to an all-day conference to discuss the history, complexity and critical discourse surrounding dance in India. These events that range from performance on the Hatlen stage to lecture-demonstrations, to a focused consideration of the mother-daughter guru tradition, to the examination of Indian dance in a postcolonial and neoliberal era, accompanied throughout by film showings and talk-backs with the artists will enrich our scholarly community and ongoing research into the history and culture of India.
