ABOUT:
Punyah
Dance Company (Bangalore, India) under the artistic leadership of one
of the most sought-after classical Indian dancers, Parshwanath Upadhye,
tells the ancient Hindu epic Ramayana – the story of legendary Lorda
Rama of ancient India on a quest to rescue Sita, the incarnation of
Goddess Lakshmi, whose choices would change the course of history.
Punyah
approaches India’s favorite epics with a fresh perspective, focusing on
the central female character and pushing the boundaries of the
traditional dance form Bharatanatyam, characterized by highly technical
footwork and a vocabulary of sign language based on hand gestures, eye
contact and facial movements. Through creativity and innovation, this
familiar story is brought to new life through dance!
