DENTON (UNT), Texas -  An Indian dance troupe will perform at the University of North Texas as part of the Mary Jo and V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series.

The Dallas-based Eyakkam Dance Company will present “Release, Reach, Rejoice” at 7 p.m. April 4 in the Lyceum of the University Union, which is located at 1155 Union Circle. The free event will feature four Indian stories – Ramayana, the story of Prince Rama rescuing his wife Sita from the evil Ravana; the transformation of an assassin into a foster mother; the struggle of a victim of discrimination; and the finale that is a “surrender to dance.”

The members of the dance company all have more than 25 years of experience, and its founder Prathiba Natesan is a three-time Indian national champion of Bharatanatyam.

Visitors for the Eyakkam event may park at Highland Street Garage and Union Circle Garage for $2 or at the parking meters on Highland Street and West Sycamore Street for $2.25 an hour. Learn more at http://transportation.unt.edu/visitor-information.
