Event Description : American Center New Delhi invites you to a cultural presentation and dance performance titled, “Indian Letters – A Journey of Rediscovering One’s Heritage.” Join U.S. State Department Alumna, Preeti Vasudevan, and Amar Ramasar, on a journey as they travel from New York to India to explore their cultural heritage. In doing so they will produce new work which aims to use the dialogue of cultural exchange to throw new light on issues of race, assimilation, and identity in the twenty-first century.

Preeti Vasudevan (award-winning classical Indian dancer and choreographer) and Amar Ramasar (Principal Dancer of the New York City Ballet and Broadway star) met and started working together in 2016 in New York City. They are currently on a three-week journey in India creating a new work reflecting their experience in India. The creation of the work, as Preeti and Amar travel around India, will be the subject of a documentary film. The program at the American Center New Delhi will be filmed and those attending the performance may be featured in it.
