She danced the dance of flames and fire,
and the dance of swords and spears;
she danced the dance of stars
and the dance of space, and
then she danced the dance of flowers in the wind.

About the Show:
Conceptualised and created by Zia Nath, Realms Of Dance is inspired from ancient sculpted stories of the Temples of Orissa, and the wild abandon of spinning gypsies of India and Central Asia. Realms of Dance is a spectacular presentation of Sacred Dance and Whirling Mandala, rendered to music and poetry of renowned artists and mystics of our sacred heritage.
Threads of the Tantra Sutras of the ancient text of Vigyan Bhairav Tantra and poetry of renowned mystics of the Indian subcontinent weave through the music and dance. The dances are tales of love suspended in the realms of sensuality and spirituality. Expressed as movement translations the dances are laced with lyrical music of Indian and Persian origin, creating a tapestry of rhythm, mystique and magic.
