“The resonance of the omniscient”
A Raadha Kalpa Production
Nayani, was originally staged and toured in 2013 by the Raadha Kalpa dance company, in support of Aim for Seva. The production toured over 15 cities in the USA and was much appreciated by audiences.
Nayani the production itself has changed substantially in the re-staging and has delved more into the character of Nayani that embodies the individual on a journey toward finding “Shiva” or ‘the truth’ within.
Nayani traces the story of a tribal girl who finds the symbols of shiva all around her. She hears the sounds of the AUM in the wind and the water. The elements awaken her to the presence of lord Shiva all around her. She begins to traverse the journey of finding who is is within.
