Abstract:

Classic dances of India performed in traditional costume by Nala Najan, leading American dancer and teacher of Indian dance. Dances include a celebrated invocation "of auspicious beginnings" from South India; a South Indian dance to a religious song; and a North Indian dance of great antiquity that came from Hindu tradition but was adapted by the Moslem culture and spread from Spain to China. The closing number, a court dance taught to Najan by the prince of the court titled "Wounded Deer," is a metaphor for non-violence.
