Tejas Dance presents Shivalaya & Kalpana
Tejas Dance presents world-renowned Odissi dancer, Bijayini Satpathy, in Kalpana – The World of Imagination and Shivalaya by artistic directors of Tejas Dance.
Bijayini Satpathy, in the U.S. premiere of Kalpana, weaves together narrative and non-narrative imagery in an evening of Odissi, building into a cathartic crescendo where the actor and character, emotion and experience, subject, and object dissolve, becoming one and the same in a palpable space beyond the self.
In Shivalaya, Bhuvana Venkatraman & Chintan Patel explore the Ancient temple architecture through the spiritual journey of a Bhakta (devotee) through the Shiva temples of south India. During this journey of
self-discovery, they draw parallels between the temple architecture, traditional Bharatanatyam Margam, and the physical and spiritual Chakras of the body. This is a journey towards inner realization, beyond the physical world and its differences. Tejas Dance presents <i>Shivalaya & Kalpana</i>
