Ruth Doesn’t Live Here Anymore
Kelly-Strayhorn Performing Arts Center
[ venue info
3/15/2013 through 3/16/2013
Loosely inspired by the career of Ruth St. Denis, performance artist Lionel Popkin uses this show to question the acts of cultural sourcing, representation and transmission.
Ruth St. Denis (1879-1968) was a modern dance pioneer, introducing eastern ideas into the art. The piece serves as a way for Popkin, who is half Jewish and half Indian, to wrestle with his own uncertainties and awkwardness with representations of South Asia.
