Solo

The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul

Maathe

Maathe is Nitya’s first solo production and is set to premier in 2019.

An “ideal” that binds us all in society, beyond the limitations of time and space, beyond
any bounds of geographical and cultural practices or of time and age is the ideal of the
all-glorified mother.  This production explores the many emotions associated with the word “mother” through the Bharatantayam Margam format. In its current form, its a juxtaposition of the Universal Mother – Devi, and the Forgotten
Mother – Devaki. Maathe is presented with live music and was soft launched for the SafeHouse RAW Program in San Francisco (June 2018)

Some of these include the Devi Allaripu, her interpretation of the Swalla Jathi for Indian Raga, A Krishna Nee Begane produced in collaboration with musicians from UK, Bhairavi Kamakshi Swarajathi and Govindan Kuzhalosai

Absence Presence

A multimedia production done as part of the Attakkalari Talent Academy. Often absence most resonates through silence. It reminds you of the value of being present. The abandonment of the body on the trail of darkness, the daydreaming, fading into light breeze- it is all a very fragile state of being. A state in which all that is present is flesh and bones, and the mind traverses beyond space and time, into silence. Nitya worked with Contemporary choreographer Sonia Rodriguez on this piece

Swans of Saraswathi and Other Semi Classical Work

Nitya’s love for choreography was initiated when she was a part of the dance troupe in her college at NIT Trichy. Here is when she got to experiment with different themes and ideas within the classical form. She was the primary choreographer for the troupe between 2008-2011 and won many accolades and competitions for the troupe.
