Exelon Family Series: Ragamala Dance Company

January 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Aspire is honored to be co-hosting the Harris Theater’s Exelon Family series performance on Saturday, January 12th. 

Conceived by mother-daughter artistic directors Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, Written in Water combines classical Indian dance, a contemporary aesthetic, and stunning sets and projections to enchant audiences of all ages. Inspired by the Indian board game Paramapadam – a precursor to Snakes and Ladders – the performance will feature live music composed and performed by Chicago native Amir ElSaffar and an international ensemble of musicians.

This Family Series presentation will be a sensory-friendly performance, designed to offer a safe, welcoming, and judgement-free environment for audience members on the autism spectrum or with other sensory sensitivities. Support services and accommodations include moderate sound levels, a quiet play area, and social narratives to guide audience members in their visit.
