Sannidhi Dialogues offers a chance for Indian arts enthusiasts, academics and students to engage with artists off-stage to learn more about music, dance and more.  This new series of open talks will feature eminent performing artists and scholars who will talk about their craft, while sharing inspirations and challenges as artists and will also explore history and important stories too. 

Sannidhi is Milapfest’s Institute for Indian Arts based at Liverpool Hope University.

The inaugural lecture in the Sannidhi Dialogues series will be given by Dr. Anita R Ratnam.  Anita, based in Chennai (Madras) , India, is highly respected as a performer, writer, speaker and arts entrepreneur and culture mentor.  She has been described as an “intersectionist”, whose work weaves the many disciplines of dance, theatre, spoken word, ritual, archaeology, dramaturgy and women’s issues.  She is  a fellow of the World Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a voting member of the Dance Critics Association, USA. She is a visiting professor in several international universities in the USA like University of California, Irvine and Riverside,  Wesleyan University, George Washington University and Rice University.

Anita will be speaking about why and how Indian dance has continued to endure through changing times.
