inDANCE announces the world premiere of The Book of Sandalwood, a novel and lyrical Bharatanatyam performance featuring a cast of twelve dancers and musicians.

The virtuosic choreography animates the literary fragrance of the poetry, showcasing the sensuous exuberance of both the courtesan (devadasi) repertoire and modern representations of Bharatanatyam.

inDANCE acknowledges this commission by FSALA 2015, along with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, The Ontario Arts Council and The Bank of Montreal for the creation and production of The Book of Sandalwood.

"...intense and knowingly multicultural, arresting...shows real accomplishment, charm and liveliness..."
The New York Times

"At curtains down on an evening of classicism and class, there was one thing one could take away from this performance- no matter the geography- with dedication, sincerity and an open mind to experimenting with traditional arts, excellence can be attained"
The Indian Express

"...irresistibly spirited ensemble…rarely has Bharatanatyam inspired dance seemed so much fun, for performers and audience alike"
Dance International
