Son of the Wind

presented by Leela Dance Collective

A double header, Saturday evening opens with the east coast premiere of a tour-de-force Kathak dance drama with live orchestra, presented by Leela Dance Collective. This dance theater production featuring an all-female cast and original musical score, brings to life the hidden hero at the heart of the great epic, India’s Magnum Opus, Ramayana. Hanuman, son of Vayu, is the supreme being who rules over one of the five prime elements; wind. It is Hanuman’s actions that lead to the victory of Ram, King of Ayodhya, over the arrogant and powerful King of Lanka, Ravan. He proves to be an integral force behind the rescuing of the kidnapped princess Sita, through his mischievous ingenuity and indomitable vigor. Son of the Wind is a timeless tale and narrates the universal battle between good and evil.
