Natraj School of Dance is proud to present Ohm Namah Shivaya a thematic classical Indian Bharatanatyam dance production on the Saturday of 17th February 2018, at 3.30pm and 7pm at the Little Theatre, Laings Road, Lower Hutt, Wellington.

This year’s thematic production is in praise of Lord Shiva, the 3rd member of the Hindu Trinity along with Brahma and Vishnu, the destroyer of all evils. The Sanskrit word “Shiva” means auspicious or pure. He is also known as Lord Nataraja, the Lord of Dance and cosmic dancer. His dance of creation is said to have been performed in Chidambaram, an important Shaiva Centre in South India, a place that is identified with both the centre of the universe and the human heart.

The production will present the various forms of Shiva and the Tandavams he performed. The gestures of the dance represent Shiva’s five activities (panchakritya): creation (symbolized by the drum), protection (by the “fear-not” pose of the hand), destruction (by the fire), embodiment (by the foot planted on the ground), and release (by the foot held aloft).

Over 50 students will be performing in this year’s production. It will be about two hours of performance by children as young as 5 years old to adults. Bharatanatyam is an art that transcends time and age. This year two professional dancers from USA and Australia will also be performing at the show.
