The SF Asian Art Museum presents “The Rama Epic” exhibition
Get ready for Abhinaya’s Fall Concert VAANARA LEELA with a visit to “The Rama Epic – Hero, Heroine, Ally, Foe” exhibition at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum! The Ramayana is one of the two major Sanskrit epics from Hindu mythology describing Prince Rama’s journey. The most extraordinary feature in this epic is the role played by the monkeys in the forest where the prince is exiled. Prince Rama seeks the help of Hanuman, the monkey warrior venerated as a god, and Sugreeva, king of a vast monkey army, to find his abducted wife, Sita. Focusing on the story from the monkeys’ perspective, Abhinaya Dance Company’s production, VAANARA LEELA (November 12th & 13th) will dramatically portray the hordes of monkeys and their enthusiasm and energy as they set out to find Sita.
