In the world-fa­mous Nritya­gram Dance En­sem­ble col­lab­o­rates with Chi­trasena Dance Com­pany in a fu­sion of clas­si­cal Odissi-style dance from India and Kandyan, tra­di­tional high-coun­try dance from Sri Lanka. Odissi is emo­tional, pre­cise, and nar­ra­tivedriven, while Kandyan dis­plays the dancers’ tech­ni­cal skills -and soul­ful em­bod­i­ments of the form. Though

is some­times de­scribed as a fu­sion of th­ese two styles, the chore­og­ra­phy dis­tinctly show­cases the dif­fer­ences be­tween them while cel­e­brat­ing women dancers. Santa Fe Bal­let presents Nritya­gram Dance En­sem­ble’s at 8 p.m. Thurs­day, Sept. 27 at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter. Tick­ets are $36-$94, tick­etssantafe.org. — J.L.
