Anuradha Naimpally and Asian American Resource Center presents Dance for Global Goals
Austin-based dancer and choreographer, Anuradha Naimpally (Austin Dance India) and the City of Austin’s Asian American Resource Center will present Dance for Global Goals, a socially focused, intergenerational dance production that aims to bring awareness to Asian refugees and immigrants by sharing individually empowering stories through dance, spoken word, and original live music.
Known as Austin’s leading performer in Baharata Natyam, Naimpally presents a new narrative through classical Indian dance: one that expresses real-life stories and transcends traditional storytelling through movement. In response to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which covers a global range of social and economic development concerns, Naimpally’s performance brings these universal social justice challenges to the local stage.
Harnessing that local perspective, the production amplifies gender inequality and empowers women from underprivileged Asian countries to raise awareness of their challenges through a creative medium. The performance is accompanied by singer/songwriter/composer, Nagavalli, and guitarist/percussionist, Oliver Rajamani.
