NUS Arts Festival 2018: Maya Yatra

Date: 15 September 2018

Time: 7.30pm 

Venue: UCC Theatre

Tickets available at

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.
