Nava Dance Theatre

Presented as part of Performing Diaspora

SEP 11-14, THU-SAT at 8PM, SUN at 7PM (Post-show panel SAT)

The Cloud Messenger by Nadhi Thekkek and Nava Dance Theater, in collaboration with renowned composer G.S. Rajan, is a Bharatanatyam adaptation of the poem, Meghadhootha, by 5th century Indian poet, Kalidasa. In a kaleidoscope of formations, the dancers layer emotion and gestural movement to expand the form of Bharatanatyam. Through virtuosic choreography and an understanding of universal spirit, Nava Dance Theater shows why love’s journey, though risky, is something beautiful.
