Ashwini is a choreographic associate of Minneapolis-based Ragamala Dance Company, which has been described as "the standard bearer of a singularly successful kind of hybridity" (Huffington Post). As first generation Indian-American artists, Ragamala's aesthetic is deeply influenced by their cultural hybridity. Ragamala previously appeared at the Hopkins Center in 2018 in its work Written in Water, with musician/composer Amir El Saffar. Ragamala is currently developing the Hop-co-commissioned Fires of Varanasi, an evening-length work based on Hindu death and burial rituals. The company carried out two Hop residencies to inform Fires, including interactions with Dartmouth undergraduates and Dartmouth-Hitchcock staff.
