"DEVOTION" Nataraj Dancers Performance
Saturday, July 22 at 7:00pm
"Devotion" is an Odissi style classical Indian dance choreographed by Artistic Director Ranjanaa Devi. Ms. Devi runs the Asian Arts Department at UMass, where she brings acclaimed performers from across the globe to western Massachusetts.
If you've ever wondered what the beautiful hand and eye gestures of Indian dance mean - here's your chance to learn. The dancers will offer a mini-workshop on mudras as part of their performance (participation is optional). Mudras are the elegant gestures dancers use to tell the stories of India.
About Nataraj Performing Arts of India:
A non-profit arts and educational organization that promotes understanding about South Asian culture through dance, theater and music in the United States, founded by Ms Devi.
Located in western Massachusetts but with roots in India, Nataraj presents traditional & contemporary dance concerts and educational workshops for schools by its resident dance company Nataraj Dancers.
NPAI's work is unique and innovative, bridging Eastern and Western culture and thought in their presentations and performances. The dancers represent a multi-generational group that are drawn from many cultures around the world, to train and perform with its Artistic Director, Ranjanaa Devi.
