Chi Udaka Australia Tour 2016

Xf2eq1uzhbxfro3axwnq

25 Jun 2016 to 06 Aug 2016


Inspired by the forces of nature, Chi Udaka is a meeting of the deep earthiness of taiko drumming, represented as Chi-Earth, and the flowing sensuality of dance, represented as Udaka-Water. At turns delicate and dramatic, Chi Udaka connects the dynamism of Taikoz’s taiko, the melodic beauty of Riley Lee’s shakuhachi, the sinuous strains of John Napier’s ‘cello, the mellifluous virtuosity of Aruna Parthiban’s classical Indian vocals, and the evocative soundscapes of John Cleworth’s electronica with Lingalayam’s blend of Bharatha Natyam and Kuchipudi dance forms.

Choreography:
Anandavalli
Music: Ian Cleworth, Riley Lee, Aruna Parthiban, John Napier, John Cleworth

With 5 star reviews and standing ovations on its opening weekend, Chi Udaka is described as "...quite simply stunning", Chi Udaka transports the audience to a visually exquisite world where the power of taiko drumming and the sensuality of dance joyfully combine.

Chi Udaka is wonderful - evocative, moving, and truly memorable .….quite simply stunning .….a privilege to see artists of this calibre perform together.

***** 5 stars
