Momentum Dance Company performs The Tiger and the Brahmin and presents Indian dance by students of Indian dance instructor Geeta Dias.

The Tiger and the Brahmin: This popular fable from India tells the story of a trusting Brahmin who finds his kindness to a Tiger betrayed when the Tiger wants to eat him! The Brahmin seeks help from the Elephant and the Water Buffalo, but the clever Jackal outwits the Tiger and saves the Brahmin. This production features authentic Bollywood dance as well as traditional mudras (hand gestures from Indian classical dance that tell the story) and beautiful colorful costumes from India.

The Miami Dance Festival is made possible with support from: The National Endowment for the Arts, The Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Board of County Commissioners, the City of Coral Gables and the Coral Gables Cultural Arts Council, Citizens Interested in Arts and participating venues, artists and arts organizations.
