Migrations and Cultural Encounters: Nomads, Caravans, and Dancing along the Silk Road

From Jaisalmer in India to Bagdad and beyond, the “Silk Road” was a vast network of land and sea routes connecting great civilizations of the classical and medieval eras. Cities strategically situated along the most traveled routes became wealthy centers of trade and an opulent court culture developed, boasting exceptional craftsmen, musicians, poets, and dancers. Explore the rich cultural histories of Central and Western Asia through their dance traditions; connecting the rich cultural legacy of these lands to modern times and the people inhabiting these regions. In the process we will also explore how migrations and cultural encounters serve to enrich and inspire through the trade of ideas, art, goods, and technology.
