Subject

dance, oral history, Desh Pardesh, South Asian, performance

Description

In this oral history, Gita Kolanad talks about performing both in Singapore and in Toronto, as a writer, dancer, and martial artist. She says that what is most distinct about audiences in Toronto is their refusal of essentializing South Asian art. This sets them apart from both exclusively Western and Indian audiences. She also briefly mentions the collapse of Desh Pardesh.
