Rudra reveraberates through the universe… a powerful force in the shape of Shiva that destroys evil and restores stability. This performance echoes the cycle of peace, disturbance, love and lament.

Manasamitra resurrects ancient Indian mythology with a stirring collision of dance and music. Contemporary kathak choreographer Sonia Sabri, brings together four dancers to create Rudra against an arresting musical score by Indo-bass, beats and electronica composer Shri Sriram. Rudra offers audiences a new experience of Indian arts.
