is a constitutive of 5 basic elements - earth, water, air, light and ether.
The absence of any one causes distraction for all living organism. Every
element plays primordial role. But ‘Water is the one that plays a cosmic
role because since the creation of our world it was "Water, Water everywhere".
It encircles our many pristine islands. In our Indian tradition Jalam is
given high reverence. She is considered as Mother Par Excellence.
our concept "Jalam" (water), water is not presented merely as a particular
element, but as man’s total oneness with water is represented. The multifaceted
roles of water in Nav Rasas (9 artistic expressions) like -Sringaram, Hasyam,
Karunam, Raudram, Veeram, Bhayanakam, Bibhatsyam, Adbhudham and Shantham
are depicted here. The concept of Jalam pivots round reality, myth, reality.
Hereby we are trying to present the multifaceted role of water- how it
creates happiness, how it rates happiness, how it causes pralayam (disasters)
how it is being polluted by the modern man, its cool and soothing effect,
its painless attachment and, much more is presented.
(A mirror of passion for dance)
is the improvisational dance troupe with Action-flowing, flexible, vital,
graceful, vigorous, and more pleasing by constant innovation, which speaks
of the multiphase of life none distinct. When Samudra is onstage all of
the life is in motion-from the finest atom gravitating towards another
atom to the movements of our spirit. The human being stretched out, closed
in, burst into multitudinous activities, rested fell down and rose again-
a world in motion. Dancers/Their movement according to the different rhythms
with fantastic leaps and whirls-weaving a relationship among themselves
holds the viewers spell bound; a dance movement made visible in the invisible
movements of the spirit with their scintillating performances; Samudra
seems to fill up the space with myriad forms. They are engaged in exploring,
experimenting and synthesizing various traditional and modern focus of
art. From the fibre of tradition they weave new cultures of aesthetics.
