“Soulful, imaginative, and rhythmically contagious” (The New York Times)
Conceived by mother-daughter artistic directors Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, Written in Water combines classical Indian dance, a contemporary aesthetic, and stunning sets and projections to enchant audiences of all ages. Inspired by the Indian board game Paramapadam – a precursor to Snakes and Ladders – the performance will feature live music composed and performed by Chicago native Amir ElSaffar and an international ensemble of musicians.
