SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY OCT 5, 2019

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art welcomes the acclaimed Nrityagram Dance Ensemble of southern India to Art of Performance. One of the premier Indian Classical dance ensembles performing today, Nrityagram is more than a dance company. Founded as a village devoted to dance and the preservation of the Odissi classical dance tradition, the all-female ensemble’s daily life of intensive training and meditation brings to the stage compelling captivating performances that are at once sensual and lyrical. The artists of Nrityagram elegantly recount the stories of the Hindu epics through the sinuously curving classical movements of Odissi dance. Nrityagram, the first company to earn consecutive “Best Dance of the Year” honors from The New York Times, is committed to preserving and revitalizing the Odissi tradition by bringing it from the village to the modern stage. The company will present performances October 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Historic Asolo Theater.
