SAPTAVARNA

Saptavarna is
conceptualized and choreographed by Aruna Mohanty which comprises of
Major classical dance forms of India. Each classical dance form is
choreographed and going to be presented by eminent artists in their
respective forms.


aptavarna or seven shades of dance
incorporates 20 accomplished dancers from abroad and the US. The
presentation includes two segments. First is ‘Sooryasnata’, the aura of
resplendent Surya. The second segment presents ‘Gitamahatmyam’, the
journey of life. Gitamahatmyam is conceptualized by Aruna Mohanty &
“KALAVARDHINI”, a study group created by the disciples of Swami
Dayananda Saraswati.


Sooryasnata : The
Bhavishya Purana says… “Because there is none greater that the Surya,
nor has been, nor will be, therefore he is celebrated as the supreme
soul in all the Vedas.”‘Surya’ the name by which the Deity Sun is
commonly addressed in the Vedic hymns, is also known as Dinakara; the
maker of the day, Bhaskara; the creator of light and Vivasvat; the
radiant one.


Gitamahatmyam : The
Bhagavad Gita goes by many names - a book, a text, an epic, a scripture.
In a day and age when we are battling with our own existential crises,
the Bhagavad Gita brings us age-old, yet, timeless lessons simplified
through the words of Krishna


This production has a pan-Indian,
multicultural, multilingual approach, and amalgamation of different
genres of music, costumes, lights and set design, which serve as a
sensory delight - transcending the audience to a different realm.
