Sundari Kalapam: The Ballad of Belle
October 29 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
One event on October 29th, 2022 at 6:00 PM
The Bethesda-based Kalanidhi Dance reimagines this “tale as old as time” through the eyes of Belle, or Sundari. This original take on Beauty and the Beast, which draws from the tale’s 18-century literary origins, uses the dramatic and humorous style of storytelling from the Indian classical dance tradition of Kuchipudi. In the Kalapam, Sundari navigates a world of fairies, imps, and—of course—the Beast.
