Parasakti: The Flame Within
The Chan Centre DOT com series
Parāśakti—the Mother Goddess, the Absolute Divinity—plays a timeless, archetypal role across geographic and socio-cultural barriers in Hindu traditions, acting as a reflection on the human condition and presenting paths for attaining enlightenment. This brand new production explores the Goddess’ many narratives and iconographies through sublime classical Indian music and dance.
Joining directors Arno Kamolika (dance) and Akhil Jobanputra (vocal) are BC-based musicians Shrividhya Sairam (Carnatic vocals), Curtis Andrews (Mridangham), Sharanjeet Singh Mand (Sitar) and Satpreet Singh (Dilruba).
A digital production presented by the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, in affiliation with the ICMSV, the Asta Alliance Association, the Indian Summer Festival, and the CISAR at UBC.
