Chinmaya Mission Portland is proud to present dancer/actress Shobana and her troupe with an exceptional grand Indian dance production, supported by Rasika.
Trance: Dancing Drums is a quest to present Indian performing traditions in a collage of rhythm, a kaleidoscope of colors, sensual poetry, and traditional Bharatha Natyam. The ever-evolving mythology of Shiva, the avatars of Vishnu, Mary Magdalene, among other streams of consciousness is re-contextualized in a form rich in movement and visual imagery. Complimented by a sonic imagery ranging from Indian classical to electronic music for audiences to be regaled and transported into the primordial state of being in Trance.
Born into a family of dancers, dancer/actress Shobana and her troupe of dancers have witnessed standing ovations at over 100 cities world wide for performances including Trance. Accompanied by live orchestra of musicians and stunning lighting and costuming creates an evening of enchanting music and dance. Not to miss. One evening only!
