Not a common event - a play about a dancer and teacher:

"Dancing Within Walls" - a play about Rukmini Devi
By Alfred Hickling for The Guardian


Rukmini Devi did for classical Indian dance what Cliff Richard did for rock'n'roll - sanitised it, desexualised it, and made it acceptable to the British. She was the first woman to flout 5,000 years of tradition by dancing in public, outraged her caste by marrying an Englishman, and turned down the opportunity to become one of India's first post-colonial presidents.
In fact, she has such a complex CV, it is a wonder no one has dramatised her life story before. Rani Moorthy now obliges with a taut account interlaced with entrancing passages of the Bharat Natyam dance style Devi perfected.
