Pancha Nadai

Date: 10 Sep 2020

Pancha Nadai comprises a selection of four pieces conceived on the Pancha Nadais (Pancha meaning five, and Nadais meaning rhythmic syllables), directed by dancer, choreographer and teacher Anandavalli.

In the tradition of classical Indian music and dance of South India, the five basic rhythmical sequences in the beats of three (tisram), four (chatusram), five (khandam), seven (misram), and nine (sankeernam) are the basic principle in formulating a rhythmical configuration. These set beat patterns, referred to as the pancha nadais within a given cycle of rhythm, are used to create countless combinations of rhythmical configurations.

In this special once-off show, Lingalayam will present four pieces based on the Pancha Nadais – from the traditional form to the contemporary.

Strongly emotive and visually compelling, Lingalayam’s creative body of work incorporates dance, live-music, text and design, and is created and performed by artists of world-class standing. The Lingalayam repertoire draws from the ancient dance forms of Bharatha Natyam and Kuchipudi.

Pancha Nadai is a Choose What You Pay event with ticket prices starting at $12
