In The Margins

Sep 21, 2018


Join us for In The Margins, a celebratory exploration of the complex culture of the Indo-Caribbean diaspora led by sugar bound artist Suchitra Mattai and her sister, Sumitra Mattai. Whether you chose to engage with sugar bound through dance, discussion or both, each participant will come away with a much deeper understanding of the work on view (and maybe some impressive new dance moves too).
Feel free to stop by anytime to enjoy one or all of the following components of this unique event:
4:30 pm :: Indian Dance Workshop with Sumitra Mattai
Participants will get an overview of the different styles of Indian classical dance and their distinguishing features and histories. All ages and abilities welcome! Active and/or dance attire is not required but come dressed ready to move.
6:00 pm :: Semi-classical/Bollywood style dance performance by Sumitra Mattai
6:15 pm :: Artist talk with Suchitra Mattai, Sumitra Mattai and Jacqueline A. McLeod, Ph.D., J.D

McLeod, Ph.D., J.D. - Professor of History & Africana Studies, MSU Denver, who will provide additional perspective and expertise in Anglo-Caribbean cultures and histories.
This event is presented in collaboration with D-Phi, the Denver Project for Humanistic Inquiry.
