TAT TVAM ASI 2019 DANCERS’ RETREAT WITH RAMA VAIDYANATHAN

COMING TO AUSTIN: APRIL 14 - 17, 2019

A residential styled retreat for serious practitioners of Bharathanatyam!

Based on shlokams from the Srimad Bhagavatham, 'NAVARASA MOHANA' is a stunning example of Rama Vaidyanathan's exemplary command of her craft!

‘NAVARASA MOHANA’ is a beautiful composition that highlights the 9 rasas (navarasa) or aesthetic experiences the various onlookers experience (based on their personal relationship with Sri Krishna) as Sri Krishna arrives in Mathura and enters the wrestling arena, armed with an elephant tooth, to slay the evil Kamsa.

Nine distinct ragas are used to portray the 9 emotional states. An exceptional choreography that incorporates the interplay of rhythm, body movements and emotive expressions used to portray the 9 emotional states of being.

Be a part of The 2019 Dancers’ Retreat and learn this beautiful composition in all its intricate details from the iconic dancer/ choreographer herself!

HERE ARE SOME VIDEO CLIPS FROM THE 2018 DANCERS' RETREAT

A video clip from the 2018 Dancers’ Retreat experience. Here dancers chant precise rhythmic syllables that define the movement patterns of the choreography taught by Rama Vaidyanathan as she watches and guides them.

A magical moment from 2018 Tat Tvam Asi Dancers’ Retreat with Rama Vaidyanathan! ‘Sringara bhakthi’ is one of the most complex emotional states to portray with authenticity & conviction. Considered the highest form of devotion, this gorgeous lyrical composition by 18th century Maharaja Swathi Thirunal of the Kingdom of Travancore truly captures the essence of being truly and utterly in love with the divine.
