Moments of revolution in Indian mythology

Rich Mix | London | E1 6LA

Akademi presents an evening exploring revolution in Indian mythology. Featuring classical dances from South India – Bharatanatyam and Mohiniattam – and the martial art Kalaripayattu.

Kavacham | Armour
Natyasri, led by Geetha Sridhar

A portrait in dance that crowns the warrior Boy-God Lord Muruga. A peaceful revolution against repression of any kind, expressed through Bharatanatyam and the nuances of Kalaripayattu, a martial art with origins in Kerala.

Vijayam | Victory
Upahaar Dance, led by Shalini Shivashankar

The concept of Victory is explored in the Rama Saptham - a unique work of the Mohiniattam repertoire, telling the story of Lord Rama’s victory over the demon King Ravana. Upahaar Dance will conclude with a thillana, highlighting the soft gentle movements characteristic to Mohiniattam.
