In this performance, Malavika Sarukkai will present ‘Shakti Shaktiman’, the dynamic and complementary tensions of Devi as the vitalising life force and Siva as the primal energy in the form of the ‘lingam.’

Malavika Sarukkai is a firm believer in the continuity of the classical tradition. She has over the last three decades evolved a distinctive dance style that is rooted in the sacred, works with the classical alphabet and invests interpretations with contemporary energies.

Malavika explores and expands the language of bharatanatyam, drawing from deeper sources of Indian cultural heritage, while bringing to her style an immediacy which speaks in her voice and in the present tense.
