Dances of India: The Forgotten Ramayana

Through Nov. 18, 7 p.m.

Every year Dances of India presents a fully scripted and narrated dance concert based on a beloved Indian tale or an adapted Western story. This year's performance is something slightly different. The Forgotten Ramayana: The Tale of Urmila, the Sleeping Princess is based on an obscure story from the Hindu epic The Ramayana. In it Princess Urmila willingly sacrifices herself to save her beloved husband, her brother Prince Rama and sister-in-law Princess Sita. Urmila's sacrifice takes the form of a fourteen-year slumber, and it's almost for naught. While she slips deeper into the realm of dreams, the ten-headed demon king Ravana abducts Sita. Can Urmila escape her endless dreaming? Can she even tell the difference between the real world and the dream realm after so long abed? Dances of India recreates the story at 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday (November 16 to 18) at the Skip Viragh Center for the Arts (425 South Lindbergh Boulevard; www.dancesofindiastlouis.org). Sunday's show will feature the student dancers and kids in the first half and The Forgotten Ramayana in the second half. Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20
