“…one of Australia’s cultural treasures.” – Diana Simmonds, The Sunday Telegraph
Pancha (meaning five) and Nadais (meaning rhythmic syllables)
Australian dance company Lingalayam presents a selection of items conceived on the Pancha Nadais, directed by legendary guru – 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 principles 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.
Presenting four pieces based on the Pancha Nadais – from the traditional form to the contemporary.
