Drumming a Dream: Setting the Scene

As the curious Kalpana dreams of a drum that communicates the mysteries of life to her, she traverses and explores the universality of rhythm as a guiding force that helps her confront themes of diversity, and heritage culture. Kalpana's story illuminates how unexpected meetings and chance encounters help build empathy, curiosity, independence, and imagination. Audiences will take away the deep bedrock of human sharing and the importance of a coming-of-age experience that highlights the manifold lessons in a young person's life.
