Indian Mythology and Me is a two-person family show of dance and theater by the Dancing Storytellers. The show artfully weaves rhythm, song, gesture and facial expressions into an interactive exploration of Indian mythology and its connections to our world today. Breaking the 4th wall, the artists interact directly with audience members, sometimes inviting them onto the stage where they are playfully integrated into the performance. Audiences will be entertained and enlightened as they get to experience first-hand, the power of expression in Indian classical dances. The Dancing Storytellers troupe includes Sheetal Gandhi, Ulka Mohanty and Shyamala Moorty.
Indian Mythology and Me is approximately 60 minutes long and can also be presented as a low tech 40 minute presentation for school assembly shows. See the “Community” page for more info.
Residency activities can be tailored to fit the presenter and local community needs and can incorporate activities that coincide with objectives stated in the National Standards for Art Education and the California State Frameworks for the Visual and Performing Arts.
“Shyamala and Sheetal add a sophistication and caliber not always seen in educational and family performances. Their show transports you into traditional stories, histories and time with ease. Audiences of all ages will be drawn into Stories on the Move.”
