Dancer Rahul Acharya told guests at the Natya Tarang Festival of Arts Indian Classical Dance Recital last weekend the story of an unfaithful lover caught in his affair. It was a 12th Century story of courtship, love trysts, and the two beloveds, one of whom became tangled in deceit. The recital was presented on Sunday afternoon at Edmond Town Hall.
Before he enacted the story through dance, Mr Acharya said, “Poetry in action is an integral part of Indian dance tradition.”

The fourth Natyatarang Festival of Arts will take place Sunday, May 18, from 3 to 6 pm, in The Alexandria Room of Edmond Town Hall, 45 Main Street.
This year Natyatarang brings together two disciplines within the Odissi Classical Dance under one roof. Two artists — Rahul Acharya and Anindita Nanda — who have gained popularity in their own genres, will be performing their individual styles side by side and will be collaborating on some pieces which brings those two styles together.
