Kamayani: between the heart and the mind

Event Type
Event Description

Kamayani is an epic tale based on ancient Hindu texts that detail the journey of Manu, the first man. As the sole survivor of the great flood, Manu is left without emotion, thought or action. In his journey of recovery and rediscovery, he experiences many physical and emotional challenges that ultimately help him find balance; thus restoring order to the world. This production of Kamayani combines the beauty and complexity of multiple classical Indian dance styles with a modern interpretation that frees the traditional form from structured rhythms and space.
