October 1, 2016 Skokie, IL

Created by Natya Founder and Artistic Director Hema Rajagopalan in collaboration with Eri Mefri, Artistic Director of Indonesia’s Nan Jombang Dance, THE INCOMPLETE GESTURE explores the tension of miscommunication. The centerpiece of The Incomplete Gesture is the lack of a common cultural vocabulary and our struggle to be not only welcomed, but to be understood. The production brings together rhythmic footwork and geometric, lyrical movements rooted in Bharatanatyam with contemporary dance rooted in Indonesian martial arts.
