Nayani…Story of a Tribal Girl
A Dance Expression by Rukmini Vijayakumar
Admission is free for everyone
Rukmini Vijayakumar and a troupe of dance professionals from India will present the story of Nayani, a tribal Indian girl who had been abandoned in the forest. Found in the forest by a tribal chief who took her home to raise as his own, Nayani intuitively begins to understand and share the story of an ancient Indian myth: Shiva who took the form of a powerful archer and destroyed the floating kingdom of Tripurasura with one arrow of his bow.
The evening is a cultural tapestry of spirited Indian music, fluidly choreographed dance and mythological storytelling, enhanced with beautiful costumes and energized lighting effects. Ms. Vijaykumar is an accomplished dance artist with a degree in ballet from Boston Conservatory.
The 90-minute performance is part of a larger fundraising effort to benefit underprivileged children in rural India. The sponsors and donors for the evening are inviting the public, free of charge, to experience this exciting dance performance reflective of the Indian culture. A portion of the program begins at 1:22 www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2_mwwu8oOE
