The performance lecture will take place on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 from 12pm to 2pm in AA 303. Admission is free and everyone is welcome to attend. However, due to very limited seating, YOU MUST RSVP ONLINE; otherwise, you could be turned away at the door should we reach capacity.

Bageshree Vaze is one of the most unique Indo-Canadian artists today. As a dancer and choreographer, she strives to create and present work that reflects her cultural influences and combines the richness of India’s culture with a Canabdian sensibility. Raised in St. John’s, NL, Bageshree initially trained in Bharatha Natyam, and studied vocal music with her father, Damodar Vaze. She later trained in Kathak dance with Jai Kishan Maharaj in New Delhi, and studied vocal music with the renowned Veena Sahasrabuddhe. Living in Toronto since 1996, Bageshree has three CDs to her credit, including Tarana, an album of music for Indian dance, which was released in India by Times Music under the name Khanak.

The World Rhythms Performance Lecture series at UTSC is generously supported by MBNA, TD Insurance, and Manulife Financial.
