This Week in Artist Talk (4/19)17 Apr 2020, Posted by Uncategorized in
On Sunday, April 19, Artist Talk returns once again to South Asia. Ambassador Sandeep Chakravorty, Indian Consul General in New York and two performers, dancer Pallavi Krishnan and elocutionist Samiul Islam Poluck, discuss the oeuvre of Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore. “Tagore was a Renaissance man and finding solace in his words and music at a time of disruption and isolation is a theme that is woven through the conversation” according to Hollander.
Two videos choreographed to Tagore songs will be shown at the conclusion of the discussion:

Sung by Iman Chakraborty
Danced and Choreographed by Pallavi Krishnan
