Ragamala Dance brings the sensibility of mysticism and sanctity of the 2,000-year-old Indian dance form, bharatanatyam, to the contemporary stage. By interfacing choreography with live Indian music and the visual traditions of kolams and Warli paintings, Sacred Earth celebrates body and nature, and soul and earth. The choreographers use visual traditions to explore the interconnectedness between humans and the landscapes that shape them. The evening builds from silent, meditative beginnings to a thrilling crescendo as the performers surrender to the beauty of this sacred earth that has been given to us to safeguard, cherish and pass on to our future generations.
