Tejas Dance presents kadAcit - Once Upon a Time
Tejas Dance will transport audiences to a far-away mystical land in India, at a time when humans lived in harmony with nature and our lives were intertwined and cohesive.
kadAcit will provide a passage to a world where rules and principles were governed by something much simpler – Love. Tejas Dance will premiere a theatrical dance production, in Bharatanatyam margam format with a brand-new score. Audiences will experience the whimsical journey through inspiring stories and poetry.
A traditional Bharatanatyam (Indian classical dance form) repertoire is called a Margam. This framework was created in South India in the early 19th century. It is a well-thought-out plan to approach a dance performance in Bharatanatyam. Margam, literally means a path. The sequence of dances in the Margam are set to facilitate the physical and spiritual journey towards self-discovery.
This production is part of AT&T Performing Arts Center's Elevator Project.
