Hari Krishnan, assistant professor of dance, was featured in two recent journals, The Dance Currant and Religion Compass.

The Dance Currant article, “The Singular Path of Hari Krishnan,” discusses Krishnan’s solo at “The Men Dancers: From the Horse’s Mouth,” a concert of original choreography for the 80th anniversary season of the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.

Krishnan also appears as the subject of The Religion Compass article, “Innovations in Contemporary Indian Dance: From Religious and Mythological Roots in Classical Bharatanatyam.” The three-part essay traces a history of the revival of bharatanatyam, citing Krishnan as a pioneer of Contemporary Indian Dance.

Krishnan currently teaches “Bharata Natyam I: Introduction of South Indian Classical Dance” at Wesleyan.
