Nrityagram Dance Ensemble is regarded worldwide as one of the foremost dance companies of India. With exceptional synchronicity, compelling physicality and emotional honesty, the ensemble has earned national and international acclaim for its ability to redefine both dance and theater, creating and communicating with powerful imagery and captivating movement. Nrityagram blends Odissi, a classical Indian dance form, with contemporary concepts to transport viewers to enchanted worlds of magic and spirituality. Nrityagram will perform its new work, Samhara, a collaboration with the Chitrasena Dance Company of Sri Lanka.
The 2012–13 Discovery Series exploring the arts of India is made possible in part by a grant from the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.
