May 11, 2013
SITA HARAN--choreographed, composed, and directed by celebrated Kathak icon Pandit Chitresh Das--is a dynamic and original interpretation of an excerpt from the great epic of India, the Ramayana.
Sita Haran brings this ancient epic to life with an international all-female cast of dancers, sumptuous multimedia, Sanskrit poetry, and an original score. Pandit Das delves deeply into the characters, creating a unique contemporary perspective and shedding new light on this story of greed, lust, distraction, and divine intervention.
