This event is presented in memorial to the work of the Australian dancer Louise Lightfoot (1902-1978) who devoted her life to bringing together the classical and modern dance traditions of India and the West. MAMU is the custodian of Louise Lightfoot's costumes, books, manuscripts, notes and scrapbooks. They comprise a major part of the materials that Amit Sarwal researched for his book “Louise Lightfoot in Search of India" to be launched at this event.
