Dance In the round
DANCE IN THE ROUND has been selected for the Gibney Dance Center 2018–19 MOVING TOWARD JUSTICE Fellowship. Write-up in ARTFORUM.
In DANCE IN THE ROUND, Parijat teaches Garba and Raas, circle dances originating in Gujarat, India, and creates collective movement experiences for people of all ages and abilities. She leads workshops for the general public and particular populations—children, seniors, immigrant communities. And she is developing DITR as a vehicle for empowerment, direct action, and advocacy.
When teaching, Parijat breaks down the steps of Garba and Raas in a way that makes it safe for anyone to try. She also creates space for advanced dancers to do more complex movements both in her workshops and in her Garba choreography.
Below are images of the senior-adult members of India Home playing Garba inside the Bubble sculpture at the Rubin Museum Block Party 2018.
