Hosting and producing a single event is quite an enormous undertaking but when when you produce 2 events - a classical dance concert followed by a multi-day retreat with speakers and dancers from all over the country, it becomes a truly incredible experience! An amazing week of dancing and sharing and bonding! ‘Vivartana - Dance Transforms’ was truly an unforgettable experience for all of us! @ramavaidyanathan
and her brilliant ensemble comprising of @dakshinavaidyanathan
, Kavya Selvi Ganesh, @sophiasalingaros
and Sushanth Jadav together wove a magnificent tapestry of stories that reinforced the transformational power of dance. From Meera Bhai, blissful in her joyful dancing with her beloved Krishna as depicted by Dakshina, to the mesmerizing movements of the whirling Sufi dervishes by the superbly talented Kavya, to Narsi’s vision of the divine dance of the Gopis of Brindavan, to the spellbinding depiction of Shiva in Shwasam by Smt Rama Vaidyanathan, there were countless moments that left us speechless. Yet the thunderous applause after each story spoke volumes. And as many dancers expressed, Vivartana, that was showcased in Austin, TX by @tattvamasiatx
on May 13, 2018- truly was a marvelous celebration of both Barasaraswati Amma’s 100th birthday as well as a much deserved Mother’s Day Gift for many of us!
