Ganavya Doraiswamy

Additional Text

With a voice described as “a thick ephemera, like smoke as dark as ink” (The New York Times) and “most enchanting” (NPR), Doraiswamy is a student of love, sound, heart, and listening. She works with an inner library of “spi/ritual” blueprints offered to her by an intergenerational constellation of collaborators. Her degrees include psychology, theater, and graduate degrees from Berklee, UCLA, and Harvard. Her residencies include Civitella and Camargo. Recent works include the Peter Sellars-directed this body is so impermanent… (2021) and Vimala­kirti Sutra Chapter 7: The Goddess (2019). Upcoming works include an opera about her grandmother and a meditation on Alice Col­trane Turiyasangitananda’s Monument Eternal.
