Her work tends to be thoughtful, minimal and abstract. So it's no surprise that ``Kalasam,'' the title of her new work, refers to the ``pure'' or abstract dance sequences that are interspersed between the storytelling sections of Kathakali dance.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><B><A HREF="http://www0.mercurycenter.com/premium/arts/docs/karp2.htm" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B><p>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited December 02, 2000).]

Another story:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B><A HREF="http://www.sfbg.com/AandE/35/10/passage.html" TARGET=_blank>Passage to India<BR>Nancy Karp and Dancers' Kalasam has a ghostly pull.</A></B><P>By Sima Belmar, SF Bay Guardian<P>WHAT MAKES A creative team successful has something to do with a shared vision and everything to do with chemistry. Both choreographer Nancy Karp and composer Paul Dresher have been considered minimalists in their respective fields, and both artists have been deeply affected by their more-than 20-year relationship to India. Working in a creative give-and-take, the two produced Kalasam, a rich and absorbing dance that feels like the work of a single vision, congruent, integrated, and authentic.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://www.sfbg.com/AandE/35/10/passage.html" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B>
