NOTINEE Indian Dance Troupe will present Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore's Chitrāngadā in collaboration with Creations dance school and other partners, in September 2018. The link to purchase tickets will be coming soon.
"Chitrangada, the Warrior Princess": In an era when women were expected to be beautiful and submissive, she was raised as a warrior and future king......but then she fell in love! A tale of passion, conflict and self-realization, of choosing between society's expectations of femininity versus staying true to herself. This timeless story by Nobel Laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore is re-created here as a dance-drama in English.
NOTINEE and PARTNERS brings the story of Chitrāngadā to the vibrant cultural scene of Birmingham with narrations in English to make this timeless classic accessible to all. The English narrations are woven in dance set to the original songs of Tagore and instrumental world music, making the production a rich cross cultural experience. Along with Creations dance School, students from The Waldorf School and Miles College will be part of the cast.
There will also be guest performances by eminent local groups, including Natyananda dance school in Birmingham, Shivalaya School of Dance of Montgomery, The Birmingham Suzuki violinists, Laxmi Gopalachar's students of Indian classical music.
