Nrityagram Dance Ensemble
October 6, 2019 | 3:00 pm
“One of the most extraordinary dance events of the year…The only proper response to dancers this amazing is worship.” – New York Times
Regarded worldwide as one of Asia’s foremost traditional dance companies, this celebrated ensemble creates and communicates powerful imagery and captivating movement through Indian classical dance, known as Odissi, and live music. The company’s U.S. return features two dynamic pieces: “Daśavatār,” based on the poem about the ten incarnations of the Hindu god Vishnu, as well as a new work in collaboration with Sri Lanka’s Chitrasena Dance Company, in which the two groups explore the intersection of the Odissi and Kandyan dance techniques.
Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 2:15 pm (free admission).
Interested in learning more about this unique art form? Attend an Odissi dance workshop with members of the company on Mon, Oct 7, 3:00-4:00 pm in Hodgson Concert Hall. Public welcome. Free admission. Paid parking is available in the Performing Arts Center deck. Learn more.
