Sangam Arts presents “Sweating Saris: Indian Dance as Transnational Labor”

Featuring Dr. Priya Srinivasan, Ramya Harishankar

Based on the award-winning book by dancer-scholar Dr. Priya Srinivasan, Sweating Saris is an interactive, multimedia dance theater piece featuring Srinivasan and Ramya Harishankar. Together, they situate Bharatanatyam, one of the oldest forms of classical Indian dance, against the backdrop of United States’ anti-Asian immigration policies, circa 1880-1964. In doing so, Sweating Saris reveals the underlying operations of race, gender, and international relations of Indian dance on the global stage.
