The performing arts of Sri Lanka are diverse, versatile, and thriving. Encompassing energetic movements, oral traditions and exuberant rhythms, these art forms have attracted the likes of modern dance pioneers over the years. Master dance artist and researcher, Sudesh Mantillake, will shed light on Sri Lankan and Sinhala cultural history and practice through Sri Lanka's colonial history and where it is today.
Join us for a two hour workshop, where Sudesh invites participants to explore a variety of rich traditions with a focus on Kandyan dance.
Sudesh's workshop will take place on the 8th floor of the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts in Room 802.
This program is made possible by the MacArthur Foundation International Connections Fund.
