Krishna Bhakti

  • Nehru Centre 8 South Audley Street London, England, W1K 1HF United Kingdom (map)

Naytika’s performance explores various dimensions of Krishna: the mischievous pot-breaking, butter-stealing child who is punished by being tied by Yashoda to a pestle; the supernatural conqueror of the serpent Kaliya. Naytika also explores the special devotion, Madhura Bhakti Bhava, of the self-realised gopis for Krishna, becoming one with him. In the rasa leela each gopi saw herself dancing with her lord. Here, Naytika is expressing her own devotion for the multi-faceted Krishna as well as demonstrating the spiritual potential of Bharatanatyam.
