PULLMAN, Wash. — Internationally-known dancer Sharon Lowen will appear on Daggy Hall’s Wadleigh Theatre stage April 4 for an 8 p.m. program.
Lowen, a student of Odissi, a form of classical Indian dance, has been hailed by critics and audiences for her perfection of style, grace and dramatic gesture. She received her training from Padmabhushan Mohapatra, the master and leading architect of the contemporary Odissi repertoire.
She is codirector of the Trinetra Center for the Performing Arts in Seraikella, Singhbhum. Her mastery of the classical dance forms of Eastern India has bridged cultures in her numerous performances through India, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Indonesia, Africa and the Middle East.
A Fulbright scholar and Smithsonian Fellowship recipient, Lowen holds a master’s degree in dance education from the University of Michigan.
Tickets are $8 for students and $6 for senior citizens. They are available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.
