$45,000

Legends throughout the world depict crows as instructors for the living and guides for the departed. In Let the Crows Come, Bharatanatyam dancer/choreographer Ashwini Ramaswamy’s investigation of ancestry and ritual becomes a genre-layering evolution of movement and music across cultural and corporeal boundaries. In this work, solos for three dancers of diverse disciplines channel mythography to evoke a memory that has a shared origin but is remembered differently from person to person. With an original score by three composers, including Jace Clayton (aka DJ/rupture) and Prema Ramamurthy of Hyderbad, India; created in part through a Space Residency at the Baryshnikov Arts Center (NYC). Estimated artist fee: $16,000/performance; $28,000/week
