A Game Of Numbers

“The mathematician’s patterns, like the painter’s or the poet’s must be beautiful; the ideas like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way.” – G. H. Hardy


Taking its name from the panchanadais: five basic jatis (rhythmic beats) that form the basis of Bharatanatyam dance, NUS Indian Dance’s 28 celebrates the beauty of symmetry, geometry and proportion in art and nature. In 28, Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer Mrs Santha Bhaskar draws inspiration from Da Vinci’s The Vitruvian Man, the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci sequence, expressing these mathematical patterns through richly-textured visuals and original music in an evening of alluring classical Indian dance choreography.

NUS Arts Festival 2018: Maya Yatra

Date: 15 September 2018

Time: 7.30pm 

Venue: UCC Theatre

Tickets available at bit.ly/mayayatra

Inspired by Maya Angelou and her poem Still I RiseMaya Yatra (The Journey of Maya) follows the struggles and growth of a young woman in today's modern yet essentially patriarchal society.

Each stage of Maya's life is paralleled by legendary female characters from Indian epics such as Mahabharata's Shakuntala and Ramayana's Sita.

Under the direction of Artistic Director Santha Bhaskar, Maya Yatra is a poignant yet powerful portrayal of the resilience and immense strength of women across time, retold through the beautiful language of Bharatanatyam.

In celebration of our 40th anniversary, NUS Indian Dance presents this landmark production that celebrates womanhood in the predominantly female troupe's history of achievements in Indian classical dance.
