One dancer and four musicians unite to display a combination of the South Indian dance called Kuchipudi and more modern techniques. “It is said that that Akasha (which means space) originates in sound, which is a vibration, or said another way, a form of energy and movement,” writes Shantala. “This space is manifested in various ways at different levels of perception. Starting from the space we perceive around us, the space which surrounds us, the space of the universe which contains everything we know (in Indian thought, this space is the fifth element and completes the four-fold air, water, fire and earth), and ending in its subtlest form: that of space beyond space-time.”
