Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

One of the premier Indian Classical dance ensembles performing today, Nrityagram has the unprecedented distinction of making The New York Times "Best Dance of the Year" list two years in a row (2015, 2016). The all-female ensemble's daily life of intensive training and meditation brings to the stage captivating performances that are at once sensual and lyrical. The company makes its Meany Center debut with special guest artists from Sri Lanka's Chitrasena Dance Company, touring their critically-acclaimed collaborative work,  Samhāra, performed with both Indian and Sri Lankan musicians.

 The only proper response to dancers this amazing is worship.
