Mudra Dance Studio is proud to present the 18th original production: Gyaan...Truth Through Knowledge
This year's show, Gyaan...Truth Through Knowledge, is one that cannot be missed. It is a show that has been inspired by the tragic losses that our world has been facing recently, such as school shootings, religious shootings, rape, suicide, and more. The Aurora shooting hit very close to our studio. The Sandy Hook shooting made schools a place to be feared. Rape cases, especially those in India, have only gotten worse and more brutal. Real life events like these have created scary and dark world. Gyaan is Mudra's gift to the world, a way to give back, remember those lost, inspire the desire for change, and heal together as a community.
Our world is facing more challenges than ever before. Gyaan is our offering to the community as a way to heal from all the senseless loss we all experience. This beautifully conceptualized show will take you through a journey; when everything seems fine and life blesses us with all of its wonderful gifts, the sudden and unexpected tragedies leave us feeling hopeless and empty. Let GYAAN show you how you can heal from such losses and come out stronger. Join us in this journey to find your truth through the knowledge of our experience.

Mudra NEEDS your help....
We have put our hearts and souls into creating the most amazing show possible. With all of the time, effort, blood, and sweat that we are losing, we really need your help to make Gyaan possible. For any of you who don't know, this show is monetarily the largest show we have ever done. From the costumes to the aerial dancing, to live music, to presenting the show 6 times, it's a show that can't be missed. But in order to make it work, we need as much help as we can get.
Memories of Heart Mountain: The Imprisonment of Japanese Americans in Wyoming during World War II
Mr. Sam Mihara, a former prisoner of Heart Mountain to present on his Japanese internment camp experience, reached out to UCD’s Mr. Dominic Martinez to offer his presentation to CU Denver students, faculty, staff and community. Please share with your networks about this upcoming event.
During World War II, the U.S. government forced 9-year-old Sam Mihara and his entire family to move from their home in San Francisco to an internment camp in Wyoming. Seventy years have passed since the incarceration and Sam is one of the few survivors willing to speak about this experience. In his moving presentation, Memories of Heart Mountain, he talks about his years in the Heart Mountain and Pomona internment camps, providing a first-hand account of this great civil rights injustice that was experienced by more than 120,000 Japanese Americans.
