Barnes Jawn(t): Madhusmita Bora
See Event Description
Join us for an evening tour full of make-believe as we play fast and loose with everything you thought you knew about the Barnes. In Philadelphia, jawn is catch-all word for anything. A Barnes Jawn(t) is an anything-goes tour of the collection with a fascinating Philly personality as your guide. These off-the-cuff, sure-to-run-off-the-rails tours are led by a diverse array of community leaders, artists, and comic-book nerds—all experts in their fields. Madhusmita Bora is the codirector of the Philadelphia-based Sattriya Dance Company. She has performed in London, in India, and all over the US. Her work has been funded by the Art & Change Grant, Leeway Foundation, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. She was a recipient of the Pew Arts Grant, which allowed her to present and perform with the Dancing Monks of Assam on their first US tour. Madhu has been honored for her Sattriya work by the City of Philadelphia.
