Chennai-based Bhratanatyam dancer and choreographer Malavika Sarukkai's performances have been described as "intense and luminous" and "phenomenally precise and unearthly. She will present a performance lecture in the Philadelphia Museum of Art's South Asia Exhibit Hall that ties the language of Indian classical dance to its interpretation in the visual arts. During the course of the presentation, references will be made to establish connection between Bharatanatyam and the visual arts of South Asia: temple sculpture and architecture, and paintings, particularly of Vishnu, Shiva, and Rama.

This event is presented by Sruti, the India Music and Dance Society, and is free with museum admission.
