Acclaimed Nrityagram Ensemble Returns to SU October 27

NrityagramSALISBURY, MD---In India, learning classical dance takes a village — literally.
   
In 1990, Protima Gauri founded Nrityagram (Indian for “dance village”), the country’s first modern residential school for Indian classical dance instruction. The Nrityagram Dance Ensemble made its U.S. debut in New York in 1996, earning rave reviews.
   
On Thursday, October 27, the acclaimed ensemble returns to Salisbury University for the first time since 2011. Its performance is 7 p.m. in Holloway Hall Auditorium.
   
Blending the classical Indian dance form of Odissi with contemporary concepts, the ensemble has performed to sold-out venues throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. The New York Times hails Nrityagram as “a modern devotion to sacred Indian ritual.” The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette calls the ensemble “just brilliant.” The Hindu lauds its performances as “pure magic.”
   
Sponsored by the Cultural Affairs Office, admission is free and the public is invited. Tickets are not required.
