Advance Notice

Dance, poetry features Rushdie

“Rhythms in Gold: Indian Poetry of Adornment” is the topic of an evening of readings and Indian dance Monday, March 1, at 7 p.m. at the Carlos Museum Reception Hall.

Faculty members Salman Rushdie, Laurie Patton, Joyce Flueckiger, Deepika Bahri, visiting scholar Velcheru Nayarana Rao, and Kuchipudi dancer Sasikala Penumarthi will express the images of jewels and gold, and the sounds of jewelry found throughout Indian poetry.

Penumarthi will perform a dance called the 16 adornments or “Solah Shringar,” traditionally marked by the 16 cosmetics and pieces of jewelry used by Indian brides.

The free program precedes the Carlos’ upcoming Indian jewelry exhibit, “When Gold Blossoms.”
