Indian Mythology and Me
(Formerly Stories…on the MOVE!)
Dancing storytellers Sheetal Gandhi and Shyamala Moorty artfully weave rhythm, song, gesture and facial expression into a dynamic and fun exploration of Indian mythology and it’s connections to the world today.
Accompanied by live musicians Jas Ahluwalia on tabla and Kamaljeet Ahluwalia on santoor, this quartet of artists offer innovative and contemporary interpretations of narratives that reinforce human compassion and the celebration of differences.
Breaking the 4th wall, the artists interact directly with audience members, sometimes inviting them onto the stage where they are playfully integrated into the performance. Audiences will be entertained and enlightened as they get to experience first-hand, the power of expression in Indian classical dances.
