Tenth Show of NGO Pratidhwani Announced; Dance Drama Chitrangada Staged on the Occasion



Pratidhwani is a Seattle-based nonprofit organization which has the aim to create and promote performing opportunities for arts and artists of South Asia. The organization announced their tenth dance show Chitrangada in partnership with ACTLab. Chitraganda is a story of a warrior princess from the ancient Hindu epic Mahabharata, which Rabindranath Tagore retold as a dance drama in 1892.

Chitrangada is a lyrical saga of one woman’s quest for love, courage, and the true meaning of beauty. This tribute to the myriad facets of femininity makes it as relevant today as it was centuries ago.

Directed by Moumita Bhattacharya and produced by Nitya Gupta, Chitrangada is Pratidhwani’s third and largest collaboration with ACT.

Chitrangada was performed in The AllenTheatre at ACT, 700 Union Street, in downtown Seattle. The production opened on April 28, 2017 and runs through May 20, 2017. For tickets and more information, call 206-292-7676 or visit www.acttheatre.org. For more information about Pratidhwani, visit www.pratidwani.org.
