Cosmic Forces

A distinctive Kuchipudi repertory exploring the concept of Shiva and Shakti. This repertory is also an effort to revive the 16th-century dying art of figure painting dances known as ‘Tala Chitra Nritya’ where dancers painted animal figures on the floor with their feet while dancing.



“Elements” is choreographed by Samarpita Bajpai, artistic director of Gurukul Dance Company. This is a 9min20sec extract of the full 45-minute piece. This is a fushion of Classical Indian, aerial, contemporary and western ballet in toe shoes (this part, “fire,” choreographed by dancer Amanda January).
