Parijat Desai Dance Company
a kinetic hybrid of Indian classical and Western contemporary dance
Parijat Desai Dance Company performs a blend of Indian classical and Western contemporary dance. Choreographer Parijat Desai integrates the sculptural lines, intricate rhythms and theatricality of Indian dance with the full-bodied movement and conceptual experimentation of modern. Through this hybrid language, she expresses a voice at once South Asian and American. Using emotion and humor, as well as the visceral power of dance itself, Desai communicates across the boundaries of culture, nation and religion.
