January 22, 2010
to Dance Magazine:
her performing, Ramaswamy's vibrant choreography expands and illuminates
this classical Indian art. "My work pushes the boundaries of Bharatanatyam
and allows me to discover the creative flexibilities of an ancient form,"
she says. As co-director of Ragamala Dance Theater in Minneapolis,
she creates dances that reconfigure the ancient Indian dance form by layering
it with modern dance, American Sign Language, Taiko drumming and medieval
poetry. Recognized internationally for her artistry, Ramaswamy has
received numerous awards and accolades. In 2010, she performs with
Ragamala in Minnesota, Idaho, Oregon, Michigan, and Tennessee.
