Mandala South Asian Performing Arts presents the classic Story of Ram, the brave soldier, who must save the beautiful Sita from the clenches of a conniving demon king. Told throughout South and Southeast Asia, the Ramayana will come to life through shadow puppetry and dance from Bali and India. Talking monkeys, shape-shifting deer, and ten-headed demons, this performance introduces audiences to beloved cultural traditions of Asia through creative storytelling!

Mandala South Asian Performing Arts connects audiences and students with the vibrancy, flavors and colors of the performing arts traditions of South Asia. From Persia to Indonesia, Mandala envisions a transnational world of exuberant exchange and artistic celebration through a powerful engagement with unique and expert dancers, musicians, storytellers, artists and educators whose passion keeps diasporic communities vibrant and visible.
