Born to the lowest caste in medieval Maharashtra, Janabai found her voice through poetry and now holds a revered place in the minds of Marathi-speaking Hindus. Decades later Lal Ded, from Kashmir, found herself married at the age of 12, but eventually broke free and went on to become the creator of the mystic poetry vatsun. Inspired by these 13th and 14th century poets, Samskriti is presenting an evening of dance in Mad and Divine: The Voice of Two Mystics by Rama Vaidyanathan. We checked in with Rathna Kumar, Samskriti’s artistic director, about the logistics behind bringing in artists like Vaidyanathan, one of India’s top performers of the classical Indian dance bharatanatyam. Kumar admits that, under the current administration, there seems to be some inconsistency and randomness about who gets approved to tour the U.S.

4 to 5:30 p.m. July 9. The MATCH, 3400 Main. For information, call 713-521-4533 or visit samskritihouston.org. $25 to $50.
