CHI UDAKA, a production from Sydney, Australia at the Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, NCPA...

Chi means earth in Japanese and Udaka means water in Sanskrit. The characteristics of these two elements form the very essence of this multifaceted story narrative and dance performance. CHI UDAKA brings together the vibrant and earth shattering sounds of Taiko drumming and the mysterious and raw sensuality that celestial water nymphs- known as Apsaras- in Indian mythology exude.

It is a show about celebrating life - from the wake of dawn to the noon sunshine to the final serene moment that nightfall brings; the shows structure runs parallel to the structure of an individual day, in which sounds, moods and emotions are expressed through dance and rhythm.


The performance comprises two scenes:

Of the Fields is one of the most beautiful scenes which is set outdoors in the late afternoon. The stage floor transforms into a circle of dirt which exemplifies both a holy space and an arena- juxtaposing the sacred and the profane. All the dancers and drummers meet in the circle and interact with each other. They gracefully move in and out of each other's spaces sometimes with a competitive tone and other times playfully.

•The second scene is called Cascading Waterfall which begins with Riley doing a solo performance on his 'shakuhachi' flute. He is possessed by the moment, and being a true master seems unified with his instrument. The sounds are meditative and refreshing much like the title of the scene itself.

CHI UDAKA is a co-production between Taikoz and the Lingalayam Indian Classical Dance Company. Both companies are based in Sydney Australia.

CHI UDAKA which will be staged in Mumbai on 29th November 2016 at Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, NCPA at 7.30 pm.
