UN- EARTH

This interdisciplinary work combines dance, movement, storytelling and improvisation to re-tell mythological metaphors in a contemporary way. Keeping with the theme of the BHUTA YAGNA and ecology, Anita and her team of three musicians and set/lighting designers have created multiple narratives to reimagine our cultural metaphors.

Mahavishnu and his eternal image atop the milky ocean... the chants of Margazhi and the urgent call of the earth are all part of the voices  in UN-EARTH

About Pancha Maha Yajna - An Evening of Dance and Recognition of Inspiring Role Models


Comments

Dear Ms. Anita,
 
I am a follower of Swami Dayanand and I attended the Pancha Maha Yagna program.  The concept you chose was very good and it was an eye opener.
Though Swamiji is 82+, he is very practical.  He must have been pleasantly surprised. We invoke Ishwara everywhere (every creature, be it river, mountain, tree, all living creatures) and as Swamiji mentioned in his closing remarks, you have indirectly informed all of us to be more responsible. This is Vedantic view and you are perfectly right.  Your contribution is great.
