Nrityagram Dance Ensemble by nanmelville Nrityagram Dance Ensemble by nanmelville
Nrityagram Dance Ensemble, performing in the Odissi tradition, during their tour in New York.

Part of the Nrityagram: For the Love of Dance Project



Nan Melville lost her heart to Nrityagram (www.nrityagram.org) when she visited it at the invitation of the late Protima Bedi. She was so enchanted by the dancers, and the concept of a village-school devoted to dance, that she decided to make a documentary film about the Nrityagram Dance Village and Ensemble. She has traveled to India three times to film life in the dance village, and research archival materials.

Her mission is to capture for posterity the story of the dance village and the dancers, and how they promote and develop the classical Indian Odissi dance form. Dance institutions in India are still very reliant on individuals for financial and cultural support, and the documentary “Nrityagram: For the Love of Dance” will be used to promote awareness of Nrityagram, and as a tool to assist Lynne Fernandez, Executive Director, with fundraising for the school.

By purchasing this item you contribute to the continued success of Nrityagram. Thank you!
