When: Fri., Oct. 20, 8 p.m. 2017
This live music and dance experience created by Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy is based on a second century Indian board game called Paramapadam and the 12th century Persian epic The Conference of the Birds. In addition, the whole thing is about spiritual ascension, so admittedly, there is a lot going on. The whole thing is rooted in South Indian Bharatanatyam classical dance and will employ paintings by Chennai-based visual artist Keshav projected on the stage floor. Don’t be intimidated, though, the performance will be both colorful and beautiful.
Starts at 8 p.m.; 121 Fletcher St., Ann Arbor; ums.org; 734-764-2538; Tickets start at $26.
