Natya Dance Theatre presents a special fundraiser in support of the Indo-American Heritage Museum. The  forthcoming exhibition ‘Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation’, explores the Indian-American experience and the community’s vital political, professional, and cultural contributions to American life and history.

Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation explores the Indian American experience and the community’s vital political, professional, and cultural contributions to American life and history. The exhibition moves past pop-culture stereotypes of Indian Americans to explore the heritage, daily experience, and diverse contributions of Indian immigrants and their descendants in the United States. Weaving together stories of individual achievement and collective struggle, Beyond Bollywood uses photography, narrative, multimedia, and interactive stations to tell a uniquely American story, while conveying the vitality of Indian American communities. At the event, Natya’s senior dancers will perform Bharathi: My Mother, choreographed by well-known artiste Hema Rajagopalan.
