Sita Haran brings this ancient epic to life with an international all-female cast of dancers, sumptuous multimedia, Sanskrit poetry and an original score. Pandit Das delves deeply into the characters, creating a unique contemporary perspective, shedding new light on this story of greed, lust, distraction and divine intervention.
SITA HARAN showcased a work in progress performance in San Francisco in 2009, then premiered at REDCAT in Los Angeles, CA and in Kolkata, India in 2010.
