Natya Yatra, Singapore

As part of the SIFAS Festival of Music, Dance & Arts – 2019, festival, SIFAS is proud to present an original production, “Natya Yatra”, which commemorates the 100 year history of Classical Indian dance in Singapore.

This theatrical dance production brings together 4 major Indian dance schools and 1 long-time troupe, each with its own rich and vibrant history: SIFAS (1949), Bhaskar’s Arts (1952), Apsaras Arts (1977), Temple of Fine Arts (1981) and Bharatha Arts. Presented from the spectator’s perspective, the show illustrates the beginnings, evolution and future prospects of Classical Indian dance through 5 distinctive acts which showcase a variety of Indian dance genres using anecdotal narratives; cutting edge technology through lighting design and animation; archival images of historic moments, places and people; and a live orchestra performing iconic historic music combined with original compositions– all of which embody SIFAS’s main philosophy – Art Characterises Civilisation.

Aimed with the purpose of cultivating the arts in Singapore, this never- before-seen production promises to entertain and educate our Singapore audience on the legacy of Indian classical dance and encourages them to preserve and participate in this art form. This production also serves as an opportunity to recognize and pay homage to the pioneers and inspirational legends. An accompanying photo and video installation in collaboration with the Indian Heritage Centre of National Heritage Board will also be featured at SIFAS and The Esplanade showcasing archival footage of captivating moments in history.
