The Flowering Tree
An original work of dance theater by Natya Dance Theatre
Based on the translation by A.K. Ramanujan
Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014 7:30 p.m.
The Flowering Tree is a timeless tale about love and transformation. Based on an ancient South Indian folktale by A. K. Ramanujan, The Flowering Tree is a dance-theater work with a sutra dhara, or storyteller, about a poor but beautiful young girl, Kumudha, blessed with the magical ability to transform herself into a magnificent flowering tree.
Performed by the Natya Dance Theatre, The Flowering Tree is an experience audiences will not want to miss. Natya uses the expressive power of the Bharata Natyam technique – dynamic body movement, rhythmic footwork, hand gestures, and facial expressions – combined with original choreography to convey meaning, emotion and a sense of spirituality.
The IPFW College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) and Shruti, the Indian Cultural Society of Fort Wayne, are pleased to present the fifth performance in an ongoing collaboration to introduce patrons to some of the most acclaimed international Indian performers in music, dance, and theatre, as well as regional artists and lecturers that define Indian culture.
This concert is sponsored by donations in support of Shruti and CVPA.
