Silambam Houston presents KĀVYA: Poetry in Motion
Silambam Houston is the city's premiere organization dedicated to the promotion and demystification of the Indian Classical Arts. Through performance pieces steeped in technical tradition set in contemporary narratives, the Silambam Houston Dance Company shares the ancient artistic traditions of India with modern and multicultural audiences.
SHDC's fourth original production explores the human experience in six thematic acts: New Beginnings, Wanderlust, Nostalgia, Woman, Loss, and Inclusion.
In each theme, poetry from every age and from across the globe is heard in native languages and is interpreted through the expressive Indian dance forms Bharatanatyam, Kathak, and Odissi along with modern dance segments. An original score composed of global musical influences creates a stunning backdrop for this deeply moving, deeply connective performance.
KĀVYA: Poetry in Motion will run approximately 75 minutes, and people of all ages are encouraged to come enjoy this family friendly performance.
