About this show

Dancing Stories: Myths and Legends from India is a dance production with graceful hands drawing pictures in the air, flickering eyes opening like the petals of a lotus, rhythmic poetry sounding like American rap. These are just a few of the storytelling techniques demonstrated in this lively program. Adorned with sparkling jewels and clothed in shimmering silks, the artists dance stories from the rich treasury of Indian myth and legend. From village courtyards to Hindu temples, Moghul palaces and the Bollywood stage, the stories illustrate the union of Hindu and Islamic aesthetics and their literary traditions.
