Mar 26-Apr 5: movement consultant for Lakmé at Lowell House Opera

Many folks who know my background know that I trained in India for four months in classical dance-theater. It taught me precision of gesture and aliveness of eyes, which I use every time I’m on stage, but I don’t get to reference the actual forms I studied (bharatanatyam and kathakali) very often.

So I was delighted when my friend Roxanna Myhrum, director of Lowell House Opera’s Lakmé, brought me in as a movement consultant to help her and the four women playing Lakmé develop a “bharatanatyam-opera fusion” movement vocabulary to bring the famous “Bell Song” aria to life. What a pleasure it was to work with these talented women!
