Kalanjali  DanceW

Two contemporary dance companies steeped in the tradition of India — but also participating in a wider outlook on the modern world — will visit the Mondavi Center’s Vanderhoef  Studio Theatre at 8 p.m. Wednesday. On one half of the program, dancer Rachana Yadav, a master of the Kathak style, will present a new solo work titled “Samvet,” which expresses the maturation of a typical Indian through the lens of five elements of nature. On the other half of the program, the Kalanjali Dance Company — which has schools in Berkeley, Lafayette and Sacramento — will present traditional folk and classical dances, as well as excerpts from its full-length “Osiris and Isis,” which relates an ancient Egyptian myth interpreted through Indian dance styles. Tickets are $20 general, $10 for students, available at www.mondaviarts.org or (530) 754-2787. Courtesy photos
