The Exiled King
Presented by Dhirana Academy of Classical Dance in Rogers
The Exiled King is a dance production that retells the story of “The Ramayana,” a great Hindu epic written by Sage Valmiki in the fifth century B.C. that remains relevant even today. The story follows our hero Rama in an enchanted fight against evil. With the help of his loyal brother and an army of monkeys led by Hanuman, Rama embarks on a journey to rescue his wife Sita by defeating Ravana, the great king of Lanka. Symbolizing the struggle between light and dark, good and evil, The Exiled King is a riveting performance that shows the importance of truth, loyalty and determination.
