*How do 5 Blind Dancers Coordinate Movement?*
Buse Gowda, Guruprasad, Taraka Ramudu, Satish Rao, and Shivaswamy all hail
from the rural districts of Karnataka. What they share in common brought
them together: they are all blind.
At a time when no methodology existed to train the blind in the art of
dancing, these men taught a teacher how to teach! The awkward postures
became graceful, the gestures more meaningful. They are now at par with any
Through more than 1500 international performances, Articulate Ability has
inspired many people with disabilities to take on challenges and overcome
what they may initially deem impossible. Awards and accolades do not move
them as much as the applause they hear at every curtain call.
On October 11th, these 5 mesmerizing dancers will perform at the Regis
College Fine Arts Center, accompanied by their dance teachers, Mr. Mysore B
Nagaraj, and Dr. Suparna Venkatesh.
