Vivartana – Dance Transforms – May 13, 2018

“Dance transforms my pulse to pace with rhythm And I become one with rhythm Dance transforms the space around me And I become one with space Dance transforms my body from still to motion And I become one with movement Dance transforms my soul from singular to plural And I become one with the world” ~ Rama Vaidyanathan

‘Vivartana – Dance Transforms’ was truly an unforgettable experience for all of us! Rama Vaidyanathan and her brilliant ensemble comprising of Dakshina Vaidyanathan Baghel, Sannidhi Vaidyanathan, Rohini Dhananjaya, Kavya Selvi Ganesh, Sophia Salingaros and Sushanth Jadav together wove a magnificent tapestry of stories that reinforced the transformational power of dance. From Meera Bhai, blissful in her joyful dancing with her beloved Krishna as depicted by Dakshina, to the mesmerizing movements of the whirling Sufi dervishes by the superbly talented Kavya, to Narsi’s vision of the divine dance of the Gopis of Brindavan, to the spellbinding depiction of Shiva in Shwasam by Smt Rama Vaidyanathan, there were countless moments that left us speechless. Yet the thunderous applause after each story spoke volumes. And as many dancers expressed, Vivartana, that was showcased in Austin, TX by @tattvamasiatx on May 13, 2018- truly was a marvelous celebration of both Barasaraswati Amma’s 100th birthday as well as a much deserved Mother’s Day Gift for many of us!
