Melbourne Recital Centre presents
Taikoz and Lingalayam Dance Company
India / Japan / Australia
Chi Udaka is an inspirational fusion of taiko drumming and Indian classical dance.
Inspired by the forces of nature, this celebratory show is a meeting of the deep earthiness of taiko (Chi – earth) and the flowing sensuality of dance (Udaka – water). At turns delicate and dramatic, it unites the powerful music of Taikoz with the intricate classical Indian dance movements of Lingalayam, creating a kaleidoscope of aural-visual energy.
A dynamic, cross- cultural partnership, the vocabulary of both companies is steeped in history and tradition, and they now come together to break ground in an explosive feast for the senses.
Taikoz has set itself apart as a phenomenon in the world of performance, renowned internationally for performances that couple explosive energy and extreme dynamism with refinement and grace. Chi Udaka is no exception.
