Dakshina Vaidyanathan

Dance is one of the most natural instincts of human beings. It is inspired by the rhythm of earth’s rotation and revolution, by the melody of chirping birds and by the sound of gushing water. Each movement can be identified with various elements of our natural surroundings. This specially choreographed production uses the ancient art form of Bharatanatyam to explore the connections between dance and nature. It stretches the boundaries of this classical dance form to depict, understand and realize the importance of nature. This evening marks Dakshina’s premiere performance in Britain.
