Dhvanya - by Chitra Chandrasekhar Dasarathy


Dhvanya joins the journey of a flute as it is transformed from a reed to a crafted flute. The encounter of the flute with the wind and its resonance with sound is a metaphor for the creative process. The creative process excites constantly. Chitra seeks and finds a language to translate the personal into a more universal experience so the dancer and viewer may journey together. In her evolution as an artist, Chitra finds strength in this idea of being a Sahridaya a companion on the path of an art experience. Chitra believes that expression through dance can energize space, within and without. It is in this context that teaching is integral to her work within the dance. The exploration into the world of physical movement and its fruition as an expression of the spirit is what she likes to share with her students.
