Vivartana-Dance Transforms' is a dance production conceptualized and choreographed by Kalaimamani Smt. Rama Vaidyanathan and performed by herself, her two daughters Dakshina Vaidyanathan, Sannidhi Vaidyanathan and her disciples. For one evening, get transformed into the mersmerizing world of innovative Bharatnatyam dance form through this unique presentation which demonstrates how dance is a latent gift within each human being and undoubtedly it is a multilayered power house of transformation. Not only does it transform us physically, emotionally, spiritually, and culturally, it also has the capacity to touch the world, and eventually to change or transform it. It alters the visual physical space around the dancer, brings about a change in the relation between the dancer and the dance, and finally awards a life changing experience to anyone and everyone who comes into contact with it.
