Twin Rivers is a multidisciplinary work which explores the similarities between West African, West Indian, and Indian spirituality. Seamlessly incorporating dance, music, poetry, fashion, and visual art, this production focuses on the iconography and performance rituals associated with certain orishas in the Yoruba tradition and certain Hindu gods and goddesses.  Concept, choreography, and script by Kiran Rajagopalan.  Dramaturgy and art direction by James W. Beeks.  Photography by Lisa DuBois.

PASS is a curated performance series presented on the last Saturday of the month at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). The salon’s focus is on original works in performing arts (music, dance, theater, and multimedia) in different stages of development. When possible, works are developed in residence at Snug Harbor. Each PASS presentation has a pre-performance reception and is followed by an artist talk.  The 2017-2018 PASS season is curated by Melissa West.
