MAAYA was a creative journey encompassing the richness of a vivid sensory experience, Akademi presented a piece that projects the aesthetic values of contemporary Indian culture into the distinguished space in the heart of Westminster Hall. Directed by renowned choreographer Gauri Sharma Tripathi together with Shivani Sethia, Seeta Patel and Yamuna Devi, Maaya was a magical dream- like experience.

Section one: An undulating wave of colour - A vibrant avalanche of dance forms burst forth, gradually settling into an undulating wave of colour.

Section two: Inner tranquility - The wave of colour subsides and each dancer serenely explores the space. A processional tableaux portrays the inner tranquility of a calm mind. We are friends with ourselves.

Section three: Intimate rapture - An intimate rapture arises out of a circulating mêlée of blurred motion. Experience harmony, swirling into a blissful trance of colour.

FINALE by Priyadarsini Govind
Stage performance
Maaya culminated in a finale performed by eminent, visiting Indian dancer Priyadarsini Govind. Priyadarsini performed pieces in the traditional style of Bharatanatyam that celebrates movement, the art of lyrical expression, the performance space and life itself. Starting with movement, the final dance seeks the bliss of oneness with creation.
