Indian dancers blend new with old.
The Indian classical dance ensemble Nrityagram returns to Eugene for a performance Wednesday at the Hult Center's Silva Concert Hall, Seventh Avenue and Willamette Street.
Nrityagram (pronounced ``pri-thee-ah-gram'') tells classical and contemporary stories through dance, incorporating more than 2,000 years of Indian classical dance tradition.
Although steeped in ancient practice, Nrityagram dancers also carry Indian dance into the 21st century. Thanks to grants from the National Dance Project of The New England Foundation for the Arts, they develop new work and are able to commission music.
The featured work Wednesday is "Sacred Space," which includes vivid colors, story-telling and live music in addition to dancers.
The performance is at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18 to $38 through the Hult box office, 682-5000. Also, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nrityagram's dancers will present a lecture and demonstration in the Hult's Studio One. Admission is $5.
