Review RAMA & SITA

Indian Dance Theatre

Desolate darkness has spread all over the kingdom of Ayodhya. For years people and animals have lived there until the last spark of hope and confidence disappeared. In this dreary darkness the virtuous Prince Rama and the beautiful Princess Sita appeared to rejoice the whole kingdom…

Our dance company took the audience on a one hour journey into the ancient Indian mythology. Using facial expressions and gestures as well as rhythmic elements from the classical Indian art form Bharata Natyam, the dancers told the story of Rama & Sita and how closely it is interwoven with the festival of lights Diwali.

November 2019, Kulturbunker Köln / March 2020, Sartory Säle Köln
