Rasaja Foundation, Delhi, together with the Indian Council For Cultural Relations (ICCR), is presenting a dance ballet called Mythologies Retold, on 11th April, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. In a 5-city tour, the ballet will be performed at Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Mumbai.

The performance explores stories and ideas from Indian mythology to provide a stimulus for contemporary times. The ballet is based on four items - Tatva, Astitva, Viyukta and Sanyukta. It begins with an examination of old stories tucked away in our Puranas and Upanishads, to locate inspiring "other" myths.

Evidences are found that a female energy or Shakti did exist, but was not paid sufficient attention. How is female energy or female activity presented in our ancient stories? How do the myths deal with reproductive energies, where the onus of regeneration falls primarily on the woman? Why has their potential been hidden from us? These are some of the questions that the ballet throws some light on.

The ballet is produced & conceptualized by Sandhya Raman, a textile and apparel designer, in artistic collaboration with Geeta Chandran, a Bharatanatyam dancer. The dancers of Natya Vriksha Dance Company (Saudamini Kumar, Sneha Chakradhar, Mallika Bhargava, Mansi Trehan and R Amritashruti) will take part in this recital.

The Rasaja Foundation, an educational, scientific and cultural institution, was created in 1984 by the late Jaya Appasamy, a renowned artist, art historian and art critic. Her efforts won the support of a dedicated group of art lovers who helped in the realization of her dreams. The Foundation is a charitable Registered Society, and is located at Kailash Colony, New Delhi, the home bequeathed by Jaya to the Rasaja Foundation.
