Ragamala Dance Company in Concert
March 27, 2013 at 8–10 pm[2h]
The Gustavus Artist Series presents the Ragamala Dance Company in Concert.
Acclaimed as one of the Indian Diaspora's leading dance ensembles, Ragamala seamlessly carries the South Indian classical dance form of Bharatanatyam into the 21st century. Inspired by the philosophy, spirituality, mysticism, and myth of their South Indian heritage Artistic Directors Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy see the classical form as a dynamic, living tradition with vast potential to convey timeless themes and contemporary ideas. 1,001 Buddhas: The Bards, the Gods, and the Guardians celebrates the thousand-year journey of art, mythology, iconography, and ritual along the Silk Route, from the Hindu temples of India to the Buddhist temples of Japan.
This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the State's arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
