With blessings of our Founder and Guide, His Holiness Swami Shantanand Saraswathi, the Temple of Fine Arts celebrates its 30th anniversary this year with a big bang production based on the ever relevant epic Ramayana.
The epic, a tale of principles and virtues is very relevant in today’s world deprived of the very ethos of it’s existence. A thread of sacredness runs through the characters (whether living or non-living) and their inter-relationships epitomized by Lord Rama’s depiction of Maryada-Purshottama – person of unsurpassed integrity and principles.
Ramayana – An Asian Cultural confluence is an attempt to highlight the relevance of this epic through the potent medium of the arts. A dance drama inspired by the art forms of all the places where Ramayana has a place in people’s hearts.
The subtle and overt inspirations of dance styles like Bharathanatyam, Odissi, Kathak, Balinese, Thai and Folk create a magic of its own in each rendition of this dance drama by the teachers and students of the institute. The surreal aura of this production has touched the hearts and souls of thousands across the globe for the last 20 years.
The grandeur of the decades old spectacular has been kept alive by a multi-generational troupe of dedicated volunteers giving this show a feel of divine longing. While costumes and backdrops artistically handcrafted by these very volunteers are awe inspiring the relentless effort of the backstage crew provide a technically class act each time.
As is the tradition of Temple of Fine Arts this arts production too is humbly presented with the sole motive of giving the audience joy and uplifting the soul, hence there will be no admission price for the priceless offering. However in the material world there is a cost to everything and so we would much appreciate your generous donations which will go a long way in keeping the spirit of “Arts, just for the love of it” alive for generations to follow.
