SANGAMA (2017)


Tulsa Performing Arts Center SummerStage 2017

 

In today’s world there seems to be a lot of conflict, fear and uncertainty.  There is no better time for us to come together to show that we can all coexist. We may all be different, but we are the same in our hopes and aspirations, in our expressions of joy and happiness.  The diversity that exists in each of us is something to be celebrated and not feared.  And as humans we all have a responsibility to look after each other and preserve each other’s culture. “Sangama’ means Confluence.

This production of dance and music will depict how we can embrace our individuality and show how wonderful the world can be if we all came together as one.  This show will feature Indian Classical, Semi-Classical, Folk, Bollywood, Hip-Hop, Salsa, Belly Dancing and much more.

This Memorial Day, it is important to remember the great sacrifices that our Veterans made so that we can all enjoy our freedom to be different and to share one another’s cultures. So, this year, we are honored to dedicate this show to our Veterans.  This show is a production of Kripalaya Dance Academy and is directed by Priya Raju.
