Drawing from the myth and spirituality of south Indian heritage, Malathi Iyengar creates dance landscapes that dwell in both traditional and secular, and rhythm and stillness. The dances convey a sense of reverence & mystery and are offered in the spirit of universal celebration. Iyengar established Rangoli Foundation for Art & culture in 1985 to share performing and visual arts of India. The company features the vibrant south Indian dance form ‘Bharatanatyam’ through strong technique and storytelling. Bharatanatyam is a classical Indian dance form that originated in the temples of South India.
Iyengar is the recipient of the 2013 C.O.L.A Choreography Fellowship from the City of Los Angeles and the 2010 Lester Horton Award for Outstanding Achievement in World Dance for her choreography ‘Shivaya’. Iyengar is a recipient of numerous awards for her choreographic works and is recognized as a Master Artist of
Bharatanatyam dance by the Alliance for California Traditional Artists. Rangoli Foundation has been honored with Certificates of Resolution by Los Angeles County Arts Commission and City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
