Master Class: Kuchipudi with Shantala Shivalingappa. Monday, April 8, 2013; 10:20am-12pm in Pomerene 316. Signup opens Tuesday, April 2 at 4:30pm. Born in India and raised in Paris, Shivalingappa’s exquisite solo dance program Namasya combines elements from her training in Southern Indian traditional dance forms – characterized by flowing lines and intricate footwork – with a contemporary dance sensibility.

Shivalingappa performs Namasya Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at Southern Theatre, presented by the Wexner Center for the Arts. An evening celebrating her diverse choreographic influences, consists of four solos including one choreographed during her residency with famed dance master Pina Bausch and another created by Ushio Amagatsu, artistic director of butoh standard bearers Sankai Juku. Come early (7pm) for an introductory talk by John Giffin, Professor Emeritus of Dance at OSU and former dancer with the Wuppertal Dance Theater directed by Pina Bausch.
