In the south of India, 30 kilometers from the beautiful garden city of Bangalore, lies the dance village of Nrityagram. There, dancers come to devote themselves to the full-time study of classical Indian dance forms. This Saturday, Sept. 26, the internationally renowned Nrityagram Dance Ensemble comes to Stanford's Bing Concert Hall, 327 Lasuen St. The ensemble will present "Samyoga," a word that in Sanskrit means the joining of two heavenly bodies. "Samyoga" will be performed in the ancient and theatrical dance style of Odissi, one of the oldest surviving dance traditions of India, an art characterized by sinuous motion and powerful emotional expression. The performance also showcases sumptuous traditional costumes and live music. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15-$65. For more information, go to live.stanford.edu or call 650-724-2464.
