Dearest Family and Friends:
I hope this finds you well in your corner of the world.
I am thrilled to announce my 2019 Spring Tour of ‘Naari: Honouring the Feminine:’ a collaborative effort between myself and Pakistani-American poet and author of ‘To Build a Home,’ Hinnah Mian. ‘Naari: Honouring the Feminine,’ layers contemporary poetry with classical Odissi dance, and is a tribute to women in their essence, form and feeling. The performance explores different facets of womanhood through narration and movement. Woman is all-encompassing in her devotion, compassion, vulnerability, strength and power. She is the embodiment and essence of love. NAARI 2019 will feature performances and workshops in various cities throughout Europe. Please message firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, and please continue to visit odissinomad.com for continued updates regarding the tour. https://youtu.be/q973YO_LUrc
*This tour is dedicated to my Grandmother, Smt. Basanta Kumari Kar, who passed away in Dec. 2018.
With deepest gratitude to my family, my Gurus, co-artistes, friends and well-wishers – their love, guidance, and support made this production possible. I am truly blessed to have you in my life.
