Chicago cultural treasure Natya Dance Theatre debuts a world premiere on the Dance Center stage with INAI–The Connection. A partnership between Natya’s Artistic Director Hema Rajagopalan and Astad Deboo, a pioneer of modern dance in India who has worked with figures from Pink Floyd to Pina Bausch, the work will explore how to find connection with each other and oneness with the self. Eminent live musicians, a life-size puppet, Deboo, and Rajagopalan herself will perform in this continent-crossing collaboration.
