Sampradaya Dance Creations celebrated its 30th anniversary with MANDALA - a daring kinetic work, performed by six virtuosic dancers and four acclaimed musicians. Sampradaya Dance Creations is delighted to announce the upcoming India Tour of Mandala - a production performed as a meditation in dance and music. Bridging the yantras of Hinduism and the sand mandalas of Tibetan Buddhist practice, the artistes consecrate the stage and their bodies to a divine purpose of self-realization. Reminding us of the impermanence of life on earth through its illusory harmony and order, mandalas are an architectural blueprint for enlightenment.
In the creation of this contemporary work - each movement, each gesture, each dancer is invested with the power of expressing the micro within the macro, the consecration of the space and the body to a divine purpose. Dance is in the moment, ephemeral and impermanent - as is the sand mandala.
The tour of the show will take place in 7 cities from December 16th to January 1st. The schedule of the tour is as follows.
Dec 16, 2022 - Delhi, Chinmaya Mission Theatre
Dec 18, 2022 - Mumbai, NCPA
