Chi Udaka India Tour 2016

H0eeuxwwugbsic0stf0x

18 Nov 2016 to 29 Nov 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.

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

“…beautiful shakuhachi and dance solos (that) stand out amongst duets and ensembles ranging from elegantly cool to high energy, all of them full of character. And the drummers, male and female, also dance – in bounding leaps, partnering their outsize drums in full cry.” – Jill Sykes, Sydney Morning Herald

“Moving and memorable, a masterful work of beauty and power.” – Katie Lavers, ArtsHub

“What a wonderful performance that I thoroughly enjoyed. From the moment you walked into the theatre you felt a sense of peace and tranquility.” – Mandy Kato, Dancehub Magazine

“The performance gained intensity as it progressed, mesmerising audiences with the perfect timing of the taiko drums. The players were in time even at incredible speeds, their arms a blur in the air, and the rhythm rumbled through the floor and the audience in their seats. Chi Udaka is an engaging performance that will delight audiences of all ages with its unique, multifaceted approach to storytelling.” – Elise Lawrence, Limelight Magazine
