Harmonic Convergence
Three stellar performers of Indian classical dance finally unite onstage
Arts Story  March 5, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...When Anuradha Naimpally moved to Austin in 1989 and began to introduce herself as a performer of Indian classical dance, the response she'd get would invariably be: "Oh, do you know Gina Lalli?" It's the very same question that Vinitha Subramanian, another Indian classical dancer and founder of Natyalaya School of Dance, had heard when she moved to Central Texas eight years earlier. "Do you know Gina Lalli?" The query – a reference to the woman who introduced Indian classical dance to the city in the Seventies – proceeded from the not unnatural assumption that there couldn't be that many Indian classical dancers in the Texas capital, so they must all know one another, right?..."

Sharing the Dance
A new generation of Austin choreographers is expanding our concept of dance through the combination of movement styles and traditions from across the globe, and Barbejoy Ponzio talks to them about the part fusion plays in their work.
Arts Story  January 21, 2000, by Barbejoy A. Ponzio
"...Toni Bravo is herself a fusion of different cultures, so why shouldn't the dances she creates be the same? "I am part Italian, French, Spanish, and Mexican-Indian," says the choreographer who directs Kinesis Dance Theatre Projects, "which gives me four ways to view the world. I have gone to India -- that is why I've been working with the Bharata Natyam dancer Anuradha Naimpally -- and in doing so, I have been able to get to the roots of the movement that better expresses why or how I feel the Latin world has developed..."

The new photo exhibitions “Kosova24: Life After Wartime” and “The Welcoming Table” may document radically different experiences, but they share a sense of life turning from season to season, generation to generation, persisting even in the face of dramatic upheavals. Life goes on, and both shows offer portraits of human resilience and perseverance.
Arts Story  June 23, 2000, by Robert Faires
"...As might well be expected, the individuality of each tradition is engaging; whether it's the Reyes family's communal filling of tamales during their Christmas tamalada or Anuradha Naimpally sautéeing red chiles and garlic in her "seasoning pot" for the evening meal, the customs and preparations have an appealing exoticism for those of us to whom they may be unfamiliar. And Gant is careful to tell the story of each family, to detail who these individuals are and where they come from and how they relate to each other, so as to draw us into what may be foreign traditions..."

The multiform troupe went multicultural for its season opener with some captivating rhythms
Arts Review  November 23, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...While not specific to any single culture, the sleek silk outfits by designer Buffy Manners – each in a different jewel or earth tone, with sleeveless tunics for the women and vests for the men – placed these performers half a world away from Austin. And the presence of Indian classical dancer Anuradha Naimpally onstage with them and world-music ensemble Atash playing live behind them reinforced our sense of being in some distant land...."
