Electrifying music, strong performances and stunning dance performances will sum up the musical fusion of classical and contemporary dance show “Satya Sanatan”.
The show was held at the Oshwal Centre on Sunday 24th February in aid of Amani Na Wema Children’s Home and was a Hoodwink 9 Theatre presentation. The Amani Na Wema Children’s Home was started in 2009 and provides a dignified childhood for girls from the ages of 2 and 13 years old. The show started off with the wonderful emcee, Jasmine Postwalla of East FM encouraging the audience to clap, whistle and participate throughout the show. Then there were speeches that emphasized on the courage of girls like that of Malala from Pakistand, education, building talent in the youth and working towards a better country by Dr Hasmookh Dawda and Dr Makhand Rai.
The show directed by Sahil Gada was inspired through a vision to combine the struggle and victories of the Gods and how they we still face them in our everyday lives. The show then kicked off with a beautiful rendition of the story of Lord Ganesh. The dance was aggressive yet graceful and soon followed the cheeky, loveable and everybody’s favorite Lord Krishna’s story where the dance had a robust modern twist. The story of Ramayan remains epic and the tempo of the music and dance kept up, floating easily into the story of Mataji showing off six bold ladies standing up for their rights and then ending with the Trimurti Gods that represent earth, fire and water. When it was over, you never realized because you wanted more.
