Fordham Hosts Dancing Jesuit at Walsh Library

On Tuesday, September 15, members of the Fordham community were treated to a two-hour performance by Father Saju George Moolamthruruthil, S.J., a Calcutta-based Jesuit priest who does professional Bharatanatyam dance and serves the Calcutta community by running community-centered art and social development programs. Father Saju mixes the Indian dance art form with Christian narratives, to create an inspired inter-religious performance of great beauty.

Father Saju was sponsored on his visit to New York by Fordham University's Campus Ministry and hosted by Father George Drance, S.J., of the Department of Theatre and Visual Arts. A photo essay of Father Saju's performance will appear in the October issue of INSIDE FORDHAM.
