Evoking mythography and ancestry, Ashwini Ramaswamy’s Let the Crows Come depicts crows as messengers for the living and guides for the departed. Using Bharatanatyam (south Indian classical dance) and Carnatic (south Indian classical music) as points of inspiration, creator Ramaswamy of Ragamala Dance Company collaborates with musicians, dancers, and DJ Jace Clayton. In a series of three dance solos with live music by three composers, the resulting work explores how memory and homeland channel both guidance and dislocation.
