Upcoming and past NATyA productions (see the calendar for all performances)

Memorial Day Weekend 2007
NATyA and VidyA shared the stage:

Avatars of Truth & Melody

NATyA's tapestry of dance and poetry took root in the ten incarnations of Vishnu and blossomed in today's world of extremes: of freedom and exploitation, of hope and despair, of reality and illusion.

In and adventurous interpretation of ten raagas, VidyA merged the virtuosity of jazz with the melodic and rhythmic nuances of South Indian classical music.

May 26, 27, and 28, 2007

NATyA's third annual production
lost tales
glimpses from 1000 Ramayanas

Most variations of the ancient Indian epic – the Ramayana –
are little known today.
NATyA weaved together the forgotten voices of this epic tale,
rendering heroes and villains in vividly human hues.

Lost Tales was a remarkable collaboration of diverse art forms and artists.
The production combined the Indian classical dance traditions of
Bharatnatyam, Kathak, and Odissi,
set to an eclectic musical backdrop of Carnatic, jazz, and world rhythms, and
punctuated by spoken word poetry.
This one-of-a-kind production was designed to enthrall all audiences, even those not versed in the Ramayana or classical Indian dance.

NATyA had three extremely successful shows in June 2006 in the Bay Area


NATyA created and peformed a Children's Series in the summer of 2005 showcasing the storytelling aspect of Bharatanatyam at several bay area libraries throughout the entire summer. This popular one-hour travelling show continues to be requested all over the bay area in 2006.

Please see the calendar for a performance near you.

dha-tu - the elements -
was an ambitious project for NATyA's second annual show.
NATyA created innovative dances on each of the
r elements (fire, air, water, earth),
depiciting traditional and historic stories,
abstract depictions on the elements,
and contemporary relations and struggles.
NATyA combined the dance styles Kathak and Bharatanatyam
and had three shows in the Bay Area in April and May 2005

Milanya was NATyA's premier show,
with original and unique choreography showcasing the union
of Bharatanatyam, Kathakali, and Kuchipudi.
The great success of the three shows in the bay area in
May-June 2004, committed NATyA to start an annual tradition.
