Bijayini Satpathy in the Galleries: Taru (Islamic Art)

“Taru” is Sanskrit for tree. Inspired by non-figurative ornamentation and the interlacing of simple geometrical patterns in Islamic art, this performance is an abstract exploration of the body as it creates and becomes design in space. The piece is set to a tarana—a musical pattern from the north Indian Hindustani style of music that is highly influenced by Persian music traditions.

Bijayini Satpathy in the Galleries: The Prayer

An exploration of the body in prayer, “The Prayer” was created especially for the Chapter House at The Met Cloisters, and is inspired by the site’s meditative architecture. The music evokes a haunting stream of prayers, resonating calls, and chants drawn from Hindu, Islamic, Buddhist, and Gregorian traditions.
