Performance Notes

× Bharata Natyam dancer, Aishwarya Roshan presents 'Satya', the Sanksrit word for truth, with pieces that explore the meaning of reality and devotion beyond distinctions of time, space, and person. Rhythmic and intricate, yet graceful and deeply spiritual, this traditional art form is one of the most cherished of the eight Indian classical dance styles. The beauty of Bharata Natyam is seen in its multidimensional nuances of hand gestures, complex footwork, its ardhamandi (demi plie), and the geometry it presents in space. Nurtured by the rich heritage of carnatic music and its associated poetry, Bharata Natyam is rooted in praise to the Gods and an appreciation of art.

This production is choreographed by Jai Govinda, the Artistic Director of Mandala Arts and Culture. Mandala Arts and Culture is a Vancouver-based company dedicated to producing, developing, and presenting Bharata Natyam, and will be co-presenting Satya. 

The show will take place at the James Cowan Theatre at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.  Doors will open at 6:30 pm, and the show will commence at 7:00 p.m.
