Swayatra takes you through the different phases of human life, called ashrams in Hinduism. This journey will be represented by varied elements of Kathak. The brahmacharya (student) ashram will be reflected through pure Nritya (movement) in the rhythmic pattern Taal Dhamaar, showing mastery over time. The grihasta (household) ashram, will be represented through a Thumri song showing romance. The vanaprasta (retirement) ashram phase is seen through a Sufi piece, highlighting the path towards material detachment, in praise of the almighty. The final phase is that of renunciation, the sanyaasa ashram, showing the full circle of life, from birth to moksha, or liberation into God.


Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places.  No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
