At a Special SummerStage Event, Kripalaya Dance Academy Presents "Sangama"

Aired on Thursday, May 25th.

Our guest on StudioTulsa is Priya Raju of the Tulsa-based Kripalaya Dance Academy. Raju is directing a production called "Sangama," which will be presented tonight (the 25th) and tomorrow night (the 26th) as part of the Tulsa PAC's SummerStage series for 2017. This word, as we learn, means "confluence," and thus Raju's show -- based in classical South Asian choreography but drawing on many other styles -- aims to not only celebrate cultural diversity but also to display how such diversity can be transcended through dance and music. Also on this edition's program, our commentator Barry Friedman has a series of hypothetical -- yet unsettling -- questions in the wake of last week's Betty Jo Shelby ruling.
