Join Ashwini Ramaswamy

of Ragamala Dance Company
May 21

As a prelude to the conversation between Pico Iyer and Ragamala Dance Company, meet Ragamala's Ashwini Ramaswamy in this digital chat with Hop Members.


Join us for a members-only Zoom chat with Ragamala Dance Company's Ashwini Ramaswamy as she offers insight into the company's creative process and current Hop-co-commissioned project. After the Member chat, enjoy a public talk between Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy and Pico Iyer,  writer, TED talk favorite and upcoming Montgomery Fellow.

Hop Members, email Kimberly Shreve to RSVP.


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.
