Subramaniam kicks off the festival July 8 at 8 p.m. with a sonorous showcase of classical Carnatic compositions sprinkled with Western influences and edible music notes. A seasoned bow wielder, Subramaniam has euphonically collaborated with the New York Philharmonic and the Berlin Opera. The Chicago Children's Choir's harmonious vocalizations and Natya Dance Theatre's emotive choreography, syncopated footwork, and gracefully bounding tunics underscore the stringed stylings.
The Ishara Puppet Theatre Trust paints the Harris stage with Transposition, a vibrant multimedia performance mingling mask work, dance, and evocative puppetry. Transposition imparts traditional Indian folk legends through a mélange of vivid costuming, expressive intonation, and method-acting set pieces.
