I attended the April 25, 2009 performance of Ahmisa and was astounded by the graceful presence and inspiring energy of each dancer in this modern dance production. Each element of the production, ranging from the uplifting choreography, compelling music, airy and colorful costumes, simple yet dramatic set design, and even the storyline itself, highlighted each dancer's talents in a way that made them shine, both individually and collectively as a dance company. Watching the performance was an engaging, positive experience, much like the story of Humkara--sweet, hopeful, and endearing.
