Event Description

July 19, 2016 Updated Jul 19, 2016 at 11:02 AM EDT

The Incomplete Gesture is a fusion of traditional Indian and contemporary Indonesian dance. It is presented by Natya Dance Theatre of Chicago and Nan Jombang Dance of West Sumatra. This dynamic cross-cultural work explores the tensions and challenges of the contemporary saga of communication clashes.

The Incomplete Gesture allows the two companies to create a unique movement vocabulary. They do this by incorporating Bharata Natyam’s geometric precision, specific expressional aspects, and complicated rhythmic footwork, along with the slow, deliberate, controlled style of Minangkabau, which is the Indonesian martial art that influences Nan Jombang’s contemporary dance movement. The cast is comprised of ten dancers, a drummer and a vocalist.
