The exquisite Ragamala Dance Company “imbues the South Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam with a thoroughly contemporary exuberance” (Dance Magazine). In Fires of Varanasi, Ragamala brings to life the spirit of the sacred Indian city — its cremation fires and the ashes that drift through the waters of the Ganges River — bridging the space between the profane world and a sacred state of mind. With their visionary approach to this ancient art form, the dancers create a powerful metaphor for resilience and the profound belief in the tenacity of people and cultures.
