(Stay tuned for a surprise guest...)

As a TPAC artist-in-residence, Desai has been creating contemporary dance in response to recordings of Hindustani music. Desai invites viewers into the creative process, as she and her collaborators pair dance with live music in this genre, exploring thumri, khayal, and tarana. Artists will also share samples of their other creative work.
