"The Incomplete Gesture"

  • IPFW Rhinehart Music Center, Auer Performance Hall 2101 E. Coliseum Boulevard East Fort Wayne, IN, 46805 United States (map)

Presented in partnership with Shruti and IPFWThe Incomplete Gesture expresses the frustration of misunderstanding and communication lapses: gaps that are bridged only when we connect as people committed to loving each other.

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 Incomplete Gesture brings together rhythmic footwork and geometric, lyrical movements rooted in Bharata Natyam with contemporary dance rooted in Indonesian martial arts.

Tickets: $10 or free with IPFW student ID
