Celebrate the cultural diversity of Queens. Enter a world where the gods roam the earth, where the sound of a flute means that Krishna is near, where peacocks dance in the rain, and where Shiva's third eye opens in fury.
Enjoy a compelling and dynamic performance based on the timeless idiom of Bharatanatyam, the classical dance form of South India with classical Indian percussion. Comprising virtuosic performers in Carnatic, Hindustani and Western Classical genres, Akshara performs an energetic blend of Indian melody and rhythm as dancers invigorate classical works with a fresh voice.

About Flushing Town Hall
The mission of Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts (FCCA) is to present multi-disciplinary global arts that engage and educate the global communities of Queens, New York and New York City, New York, in order to foster mutual appreciation. As advocates of arts equity since 1979, they support local, immigrant, national, and international artists, developing partnerships and collaborations that enhance our efforts.
Flushing Town Hall provides exciting opportunities for kids and families to encounter the arts together. Their performance series showcases talented professionals from a variety of performing arts and cultures whose shows have proven to be entertaining for audience members young and old. Their Interactive Arts compliment these presentations by giving kids and families a fun opportunity to do a hands-on exploration of the show's art forms taught by the performers or Flushing Town Hall teaching artists.
