Special Performance of Ananda Ganesha

A Maya
Ganesha

Classical Bharata Natyam dance performance, with audience participation, followed by a hands-on activity. For all ages. Free with museum admission.

 

Director/Dancer: Dr. Nalini Rau

Dancers: Meena Chen, Riti Bhadarkar

This dance of Ganesha is performed when we have transformed ourselves into our highest joyous selves. It tells the story of Ganesha, his playful nature, as well the deeper meaning behind the form. There will be audience participation with the introduction of the mudras/hand gestures and the sthanakas/feet positions used in our visualization of Ganesha. The dance style is Bharata Natyam, an ancient, beautiful, sophisticated classical dance form from India. Followed by a demonstration and activity of how to make your own Ganesha, who is often associated with the earth element or tatva.
