KANAKAVALLI VIGNETTES - ANITA RANJANI GUEST CURATES

Anita Ranjani, Kanakavalli’s August Vignette, is a trained Bharatanatyam dancer who founded the first conservatory for the Indian classical performing arts in the US. In this intimate conversation, Anita opens up about her evolving relationships with her mother, with her brother and with dance itself, as well as about her attempts to explore her North and South Indian heritage through dance. She shares her hopes and fears for the future of the Indian classical arts in the US, expressing the belief that integrity and authenticity are the only way forward.

Candid and articulate, warm and funny, Anita takes a moment out of a busy schedule to browse through the Kanakavalli repertoire, curating a selection of fine kanjivarams that speak to her sense of beauty and tradition. Read the entire conversation on our journal, and shop her curation right here.
