Long known for bringing world class artistic performances to our area, the Dreamery Rural Arts Initiative welcomes the return of the South Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam to the barn at Dreamacres, near Wykoff, Minnesota, on Sunday, August 14, from 3 to 5 p.m.
Rooted in the writings of the Sephardic Jewish poets of southern Spain’s Golden Age (10-12c CE), this dance, called ‘Haven’t I Hidden Your Name?,’ illuminates the universal journey of a human soul longing for transcendence.
Created for dancer Tamara Nadel by choreographer Ranee Ramaswamy, ‘Haven’t I Hidden Your Name?,’ explores the synergies between Jewish and Hindu mystical traditions, brought to life through the living language of Bharatanatyam, the classical dance of South India.  
The poetry comes from an era known for innovations in art and thought that emerged from the intermingling of Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions. An original score—commissioned from Cantor Basya Schechter, Lalit Subramanian and Vinod Krishnan—uses poetry sung in the original Hebrew, and weaves together Jewish and Carnatic (South Indian classical) genres and instrumentation.
No reservations are needed and a free-will offering will be accepted. For more information, visit websites at www.dreamacresfarm.org. or www.dreameryruralartsinitiative.org
