THE IDEA OF GOD: Is He the creator, or is he my creation? Does God reside in art, or is art a pathway to him? Do I seek Him, or is She in me?

This solo full performance by Dr. Apoorva Jayaraman in the classical Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam, explores the idea of God in Indian philosophy and thought through previously unseen texts and narratives. From the ancient Hindu scriptures, the Vedas, and the oldest Tamil language literature in the form of Sangam poetry, all the way down to revolutionary and modern writings of the 21st century, this visual journey probes the Indian understanding of God through the centuries.

Dr. Apoorva Jayaraman is a physicist and an astronomer who decided to made a conscious career change to dedicate her life to the pursuit of Bharatanatyam. She is the founding member of an organization that makes art interactive and accessible to one and all.

Samskriti is deeply indebted to its funders who have made this program possible – the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance, Texas Commission on the Arts, Dance Source Houston, and Enbridge Fueling Futures for a corporate grant.
