The choreography begins by exploring the concept of Sakthi, the universal energy represented by the Mother Goddess. Sakthi is the driving force behind all actions in the universe. Lord Siva, the king of Dance, symbolizes the universal matter. The harmonious union of Sakthi and Siva is the essence of every action and existence in the world. This scientific concept is beautifully expressed in the opening verse of Aadi Sankaracharya’s Soundaryalahari: “Sivassakthya yuktho yadi bhavati saktha.”
The choreography then moves on to a verse from the Taithareeya Upanishad, which explains how matter and energy combine to create the five elements: sky, wind, fire, earth, and water. From this fusion, the floral world emerges, providing nourishment to the fauna that evolves. The pinnacle of this evolution is the human being, where every cell pulsates with matter and energy. Each human being is a microcosm, a reflection of the macrocosm that is the universe. Through this choreography, the interconnectedness of matter, energy, and life are explored, emphasizing the profound relationship between the individual and the vastness of the universe.
