Kathak - Symphony Space
November 04, 2018 - New York

Dancers of all ages learning the Indian Classical Dance form of Kathak present a unique show of storytelling through their style of dance. The show is primarily in English with some pieces in Hindi and Spanish. These are not famous actors or professional dancers. They are everyday women–mothers, sisters, and daughters who hold dance in their passions and prayers. The women performing in this showcase are doctors, architects, engineers, lawyers, students, and finance industry professionals... and they all have a story to tell.

Grandes Pequeninos - The Tank
November 04, 2018 - New York

Grandes Pequeninos is a project that addresses the magical universe of love in the family. Created by Jair Oliveira and Tânia Khalill (very talented Brazilian musician and actress). The show's songs, written by Jair, touch on subjects such as diversity, the importance of books, imagination, songwriting and resilience, among others. The couple aims to create interesting content both for adults and children. The musical seeks to establish a solid and fun identity for Brazilian families through the portrayal of a real family that is culturally diverse, artistic and holds kindness, care, learning and fun as their core values. Tania and Jair moved to NYC last January with their two kids, and kindly offered to perform the show free of charge to support BrazilFoundation's {Abrace o Brasil} Campaign and to expose Brazilian music to Brazilian kids who live in the United States.

Its average ticket price of $141 remains one of the highest box office rates in its niche. This amazing hit was originally in book form and the creativity of Steven Levenson led to its seamless transition to a wave-making high school musical.
