A SACRED MORAL STORY, A SACRED DANCE-DRAMA OFFERING, AND A SACRED CAUSE

We are pleased to announce the musical dance drama, Mohini Bhasmasura Nritya Samhaar, at the Hindu Temple of Central Illinois, on Saturday, August 3, 2019 from 5 pm to 7 pm.

The Hindu Temple has recently undergone major structural changes to better serve the needs of spiritual seekers of Peoria. These changes include the construction of a half-mile road from the Kickapoo Creek road, an expansion of the parking lot, and extensive infrastructural improvements which benefit the temple, as well as the surrounding community. In order to support this project, the students and friends of Mudra School of Dance Ltd. have organized a bharatanatyam dance drama based on a classic story of victory of good over evil. The drama is directed and choreographed by Meena Thota who has been teaching classical dance for more than twenty five years. The performers have put their extensive efforts as an offering to the Divine. Some of the dancers have been performing since they had just started walking, and now as young adults, their dedication manifests as intricate skills. Many younger performers demonstrate such a degree of discipline, that truly will shock the audience. Elaborate costumes will augment the dance and music performance.

After the performance, tasty dinner will be served sponsored by multiple Indian restaurants and grocery stores.  For more information on tickets, please contact pattekar@hotmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you at 4210 Temple Hill Road, Peoria, IL, 61604, on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019.
