Temple shines the spotlight on the fraying of public life and the growing reality that people participate in institutions less and less. Through the language of Indian Dance and Hip-Hop culture, Chitra Subramanian will explore the experiences and stories of her South Asian immigrant journey. She will also showcase the limitless ways in which Hip-Hop continues to transform, inspire and unleash untapped talent and power.

These artists are mentored by seasoned arts administrators from The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium to construct innovative methods of deepening the audience’s involvement in their creative process.
