Time in Indian philosophy has no absolute beginning, but is infinite and cyclic. The Cosmic creator himself is supposed to be beginning less and endless. BRAHMAKALPA is an unfathomable unit of time that is supposed to be equivalent to one day of the all pervading supreme truth. This makes us realize, that the Universe itself rides on eternal time that is constant and divine. This dance production draws parallels between the cosmological and mythological relationship that the Earth’s evolution has with time starting right from the Big Bang Theory. Sanskrit and Tamil verses which reflect scientific theories are explored to unravel the mystery between Time, Earth and the Cosmic Consciousness.
BRAHMAKALPA is a collaborative work between Indian and Malaysian dancers pushing boundaries to explore a contemporary theme in the Bharatanatyam medium.
