Oct. 18: Nrityagram Dance Ensemble to Perform in Weis Center

On Thursday, October 18, the Nrityagram Dance Ensemble will perform on the Weis Center for the Performing Arts stage at 7:30 p.m.

One of the premiere Indian classical dance ensembles performing today, Nrityagram had the unprecedented distinction of making The New York Times‘ “Best Dance of the Year” list in 2015 and 2016. More than a dance company, Nrityagram was founded as a village devoted to Odissi dance. The all-female ensemble’s daily life of intensive training and meditation brings to the stage compelling performances that are at once sensual and lyrical. In 2018-19, the company returns to the United States with special guest artists from Sri Lanka’s Chitrasena Dance Company for a tour of their critically acclaimed collaborative work, Saṃhāra.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, $15 for Bucknell employees and non-Bucknell students, and $10 for Bucknell students. They can be purchased at any Campus Box Office location, or online here.

For more information about this event, contact Lisa Leighton, marketing and outreach director, at 570-577-3727 or by e-mail at lisa.leighton@bucknell.edu.
