Nayika (A Dancing Girl)
A chance remark by an old friend in Sydney takes a woman back to her teenage years: living alone, by the sea in Chennai. She's preparing for her debut dance recital, her Arangetram. She's falling in love too! But when young love begins to unravel, the memories flooding back take on a power of their own'
A breathtaking solo performance melding storytelling, live music and Bharatanatyam dance, made for the unique talents of Helpmann Award-winning Vaishnavi Suryaprakash (Counting and Cracking, Galileo, Sami in Paradise), Nayika is story as survival. It is dance as resistance. It is a new type of heroine: one we have yet to imagine.
