Shiv Shakti enthralls the Capital

Shiv Shakti enthralls the Capital
The dance presentation, Shiva Shakti, consisted of a series of magnificent recitals that attempted to portray the union of Shiva, the male principle and pure consciousness with Shakti, the dynamic feminine energy.

The narrator of the recital explains, 'In the ancient Indian philosophy of tantra, it is said that the Kundalini Shakti exists in every atom of the universe. Kundalini Shakti in its dormant state is represented by a coiled snake, nestled at the base of the spine. When this energy is awakened, it ascends through the seven chakras to unite above the crown of the head with Shiva. This consummation creates an experience of bliss. This Kundalini Shakti in each one of us, unites us and connects us in the dance of Shiva.'

The show was directed by Dev Issaro, choreographed by Daksha Sheth and her daughter Isha Sharvani and the music was orchestrated by Tao Issaro.  Throughout her career, Daksha Seth has explored various art movements from different corners of India: Kathak from the North, Mayurbhanj Chhau from the East, the martial art of Lakaripayattu from the South and aerial techniques of Mallakhamb from the West. She and Dev Issaro amalgamated all these disciplines with dramatic staging and innovative music to formulate a strong and vibrant dance-drama experience with indigenous roots.

All the performers in the show were from the Daksha Sheth Dance Company that boasts of  its unique form of dance expression that the audience enjoyed in all its vibrancy.

Some of the dignitaries present at the occasion were Kiran Bedi, Shubha Mudgal, Abha Dalmia, Herbart Traxl, Shailesh Khaitan, Radha Reddy and Kaushalya Reddy.
