EMPAC Presents
Shantala Shivalingappa: Namasya and Swayambhu Saturday, October 15

The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) will present a dynamic double program of contemporary solos and Kuchipudi, a 2,000-year-old traditional Indian dance style that fuses dance, music, and theater. Acclaimed for her exquisite performances across India and Europe, Shantala Shivalingappa has been called “a total revelation” and “divinely gifted” for her grace, finesse, and powerful presence on stage. She has performed with some of the greatest contemporary theater and dance artists working today, including Maurice Béjart and Peter Brook, bringing her stamp of classical mastery to contemporary works. The performance begins at 8 p.m. in the EMPAC Theater.

Tickets are $18/$13/$6.
