Help us produce, present and perform a contemporary project rooted in classical Indian music and dance traditions

RASA
Classical and Contemporary Essence of India's Dance and Music
featuring
Srishti Dances of India | Sumkali | The Spilling Ink Project | Hans Anderson

Acclaimed Ann Arbor performance groups, Srishti Dances of India and Sumkali join forces to present a dynamic evening of a double bill of Indian dance and music. While innovative and contemporary in their approach and presentation, both performances will be rooted in classical Indian dance and music traditions. 

Srishti has worked with multi-talented Ann Arbor video artist Hans Anderson http://hansandersonscreen.wordpress.com/ to add an exciting multi-media aspect to its performance of Samudra: Churning Oceans, a new production that combines Odissi and Bharatanatyam forms of classical Indian dance in collaboration with the well-known Washington, DC based dance company, The Spilling Ink Project

Sumkali plays "Indian music made in America," performances of Indian classical, light classical, folk and fusion music from both North and South India.

Why we need your help:

We offer this performance FREE for the community because we are passionate about Indian performing arts and want to share our heritage and culture with you in what promises to be an artistic and educational experience. However, we have production costs and will need community support from people like you to produce the performance.

It is very simple, and we offer you complete transparency. The costs we need to cover include:

Theater rental: $450

Facility rental insurance: $250

Travel costs for The Spilling Ink Project dancers: $200 * 3 = $600

Lighting technician: $200

Total = $1,500

All artists are performing without any honoraria. All we are looking to do is cover our costs. Please help us today to make it possible! Can we please count on your generous support?
