From the Chicago Sun Times:<P><B>Dancing 'visual poetry'</B> <P>August 31, 2001<P>By Mary Houlihan <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>When Hema Rajagopalan came to Chicago in 1974 from her native India, she found an Indian community devoid of the culture of its homeland. A performer of bharatanatyam, the classical dance form of India, she made it her mission to preserve and promote the art form and thus sustain the culture of her ancestors.<P>"It became evident to me that maintaining our roots and teaching this background to younger generations was something that I could not ignore," recalled Rajagopalan, who founded Natya Dance School where she taught the skills of bharatanatyam.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.suntimes.com/output/theater/wkp-news-call31.html" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>

Making Music, Quite Literally, With Their Feet
by GIA KOURLAS for the New York Times

The most vivid characterizations in the piece emerged in the second section, "Sustenance," in which six evils - lust, desire, greed, pride, anger and jealousy - were brought to life in amusing, over-the-top vignettes. Admirably precise dancers, accompanied by four musicians, held nothing back with animated facial expressions that entailed eye rolling and even the occasional smirk.
