In this enchanting program tailored for families—on Mother’s Day!—Sujatha and a group of her talented students explore the myth of the mother and child in Indian mythology by drawing from episodes of the child Krishna and his mother, Yasoda. The incarnation of Lord Krishna and his exploits have fascinated many poets and composers down through the centuries. His mysterious birth, mischievous childhood, and adventurous youth are a delight to watch. This highly accomplished performer and teacher of the south Indian classical dance Bharatanatyam lives and teaches dance in Cleveland and performs professionally both in the United States and India. Sujatha’s graceful dances superbly echo the classical Indian sculptures in the museum’s collection.
