Indian dance and classical music, reimagined

Ragamala Dance Company and chamber ensemble Brooklyn Rider take old forms and spin them in new and magnificent ways. Now the two groups share an evening. Brooklyn Rider offers its fresh take on Beethoven’s Opus 132 along with five new commissions by female composers. Ragamala breathes new life into the South Indian dance form Bharatanatyam; with “Nocturne,” Ashwini Ramaswamy threads the personal and the divine with her choreography of a post-twilight journey. -Sheila Regan
