“A Hundred Moons,” an Indian classical dance performance by Neha Bansal, was presented to a sold-out audience at the Harvard Ed Portal on Oct. 30.

Bansal, a graduate student at the Harvard Kennedy School, shared her love of dance with the Ed Portal community. At the start of the program, the audience was encouraged to find their inner sound and rhythm within an active and noisy world.

The performance was held close to the night of Diwali, a Hindu festival of lights, and focused on the love story of deities Krishna and Radha. Bansal’s delicate hand gestures and movements helped paint a picture of their relationship. The accompanying music was also composed by Bansal.

“A Hundred Moons”  is just one among a variety of events that Harvard offers at the Ed Portal — as well as across Harvard’s campus and throughout the community. For more information about the Ed Portal, or to learn about upcoming events and programs, please visit its website.
