The Wild Unknown 2.0
In continuation with the exploration of sharing stories through movement, this time we delve deeper. All life is made up of the five elements, Air, Water, Wind, Fire and Ether. We journey with you into the magical world of nature, connecting to its elements and feel its manifestation in us humans. Nature is our greatest teacher, if we learn to listen. It is said that the one who understands how these elements work, has understood life itself. The show is choreographed and curated by Kavya Viswanathan , Martiyas artistic director.
About the artist
Martiya Dance Community, founded in 2013, is dedicated to encouraging self expression and wellness for women through dance. Our philosophy is based on the belief that art is a process of introspection. Through expressive movements we facilitate the exploration and managing of emotions, thereby setting a clear direction towards self love and building self-confidence.
Kavya Viswanathan artistic director of Martiya, has been teaching and dancing professionally in the city since 2008. Though the core dance form she practices is categorized under belly dance, she prefers to call herself a plain "dancer". This is because over the years she has been trained in many movement art forms, ranging from contemporary, ballet, jazz, Bharatanatyam, Odissi & Urban dances. This has resulted in the body finding its own unique form of movement expression. The understanding of our unique body rhythm and how that can be trained and used to create work of art that reaches out to the world, forms the basis of her instructions and dance works.
