Experience art through sound, sight, movement of body, slithering of sand, words, music and more significantly……. through the magic that happens when all of these come together!

Hyderabad|India|August'2012: A unique multi-artform performance – ‘Dasha-Avatāra’ combining music, dance, storytelling and sand-art is to be held in city. A premier presentation by Anya, Dasha-Avatāra is conceived with a blend of various art forms and showcases different stages of evolution using the allegory of Dasha-Avatāra from the Hindu mythology on the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The performance is being organised as part of Hydourite, an initiative celebrating the spirit of Hyderabad with over ‘100 days of celebrations’ with various kinds of events woven around the spirit of Hyderabad. The performance will be held in Hyderabad on Saturday, 18th August 2012, 7:00 pm onwards at Hotel Avasa, Opp. NIFT, Madhapur, Hyderabad. The entry to the event is free. However, entry passes need to be obtained prior to the event from Hydourite.

‘Dasha-Avatara’ features artists of repute viz. Ms. Anasuya (Music), Dr. Anupama Kylash (Dance), Mr. Kanth Risa (Sand artist) and Ms. Deepa Kiran (Storyteller). The production showcases different stages of evolution using the allegory of Dasha-Avatāra, highlighting the unique philosophical underpinnings of each of the 10 stages.

Kuchipudi exponent Dr. Anupama Kylash portrays the story through her dance. She has participated in various Dance festivals across the country and has to her credit over 600 performances in the last 20 years. Beginning with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Dance, she now holds a Doctorate in Dance. She holds a ‘Vishaarad’ in Hindustani music too. Anupama also wields the pen with as much as ease and has authored many articles and a book.

Vocalist Anasuya lends her singing prowess to ‘Dasha-Avatara’. A multi-faceted artist, Anasuya is involved with Music, Dance, Theatre and Art work. She is an adept in singing in different languages, and is particularly known for her expression, and punctuation of the literary pieces, for her voice range and tonal quality. She has a fine understanding of Hindustani music also. She along with Dr. Anupama has started ‘Anubhav’ Centre for Music, Dance and Literature.

Sand Artist Kanth-Risa portrays the story of ‘Dasha-Avatara’ through images on sand. He has shared the stage with many eminent artists across the globe. Kanth Risa describes himself as an artist, a wanderer and most importantly a “do-nothing” fellow. This travelling artist doesn’t believe in confining himself to one particular medium – he is a painter, sculptor, good cook and script writer.

Professional story teller Deepa Kiran breathes life into words with her rendering of the ‘Dasha-Avatara’ story. With voice-training from the studios of All India Radio, training in classical dance and a Master’s in English Literature, story-telling is a medium she finds expression in. She is a member of two International Professional Storyteller’s Networks. She has held numerous storytelling performances, camps and workshops. She also holds storytelling workshops for adults.

With Dasha-Avatāra, viewers can experience art through sound, sight, movement of body, slithering of sand, words, music and more significantly……. through the magic that happens when all of these come together!
