Ragamala Rooted: Myths and Stories – Storytelling by Zaraawar Mistry

In Written in Water, Ragamala Dance Company draws literary inspiration from several myths and stories from both the Hindu and Sufi traditions. These stories frame both a narrative arc for Written in Water and create a world on stage for the dancers to explore the universal paradigm of a seeker on a journey.

To learn more about the rich tradition of Hindu myths and stories, Zaraawar Mistry presents Children’s Stories from India, a family-friendly storytelling performance. Enter a world of magic and imagination with Indian-born actor and storyteller Zaraawar Mistry, in his retelling of classic myths, historical stories and animal fables from India. Greg Herriges plays live music on guitar and bouzouki (Greek lute).

This event is part of Ragamala Rooted: Written in Water. To learn more about Ragamala Rooted, please visit ragamalarooted.org.

Written in Water will be publicly presented at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts on February 15, 2020. To learn more about this performance, please visit ordway.org/event/ragamala-dance-company.
