A unique take on a pair of classic stories will show in Truckee and Lake Tahoe’s South Shore this weekend.

Southern California’s Blue13 Dance Company will perform “Fire & Powder” at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa on Friday and at the Truckee High School Theater Saturday.

“Since 1999, the company has performed all over the United States and abroad in its signature Neo-Kathak and Bollywood-Tech styles, modern dance work that is highly energetic, colorful, and theatrical, and inspired by the classical and cultural dance of India,” according to the dance company. “The Company’s mission is to advance non-traditional contemporary dance, while preserving and cultivating the cultural and classical forms of India.”

“Fire & Powder” is inspired by both “Romeo and Juliet” and “West Side Story” and features a soundtrack including Bollywood, hip hop and rock hits.

“Hip Hop Capulets battle Bollywood Montagues in the classic tale of star-crossed lovers, with dancers performing American street dance, funkified Bhangra, contemporary, and other Indian dance styles,” according to a description of the show.

Saturday’s performance in Truckee will also feature a food truck roundup, DJ and costume contest beginning at 5:30 p.m.
