Mahanatam (Cosmic Dance of Shiva) by Radha Raja Reddy

Drs. Raja and Radha Reddy are a legendary Kuchipudi dancing couple, gurus and choreographers. Their names are synonymous with Kuchipudi dance and are regarded solely responsible for bringing it on the cultural map of the world.

Mahanatam (Cosmic Dance of Shiva)

The Performance Mahanatam is an ode to an era when the celestial dances of Hara (Shiva a.k.a. Nataraja) and Parvati the artificer duo of the Universe mesmerized the sagacious connoisseurs. He is the creator of the majestic Tandavam (masculine dance) and lyrical Lasyam (feminine dance) that are an integral part of all creatures of the universe.

The music for this production is apostrophic and descriptive. The dancers depict the creation of Lasya and Tandava and its infusion into the creatures. They conclude with an intricate rhythmic piece that defines five rhythmic sub-divisions (jaatis) that sprang from the feet of Lord Shiva, giving an electrifying climax to 'Mahanatam'.
