Sitayana is a respectful retelling of the Ramayana, but from Sita’s the partner of Prince Rama’s point of view. It is the story of a woman, not only of our times but of all times. The two-hour performance portrays five important episodes in Sita’s life, which span almost the whole story of the Epic, but with Sita at the centre stage. Inside this framework, the ancient tale is told through visually stunning and rhythmically gripping dance choreography set to an enchanting musical score and the evocative poetry of Valmiki, the author of the original Sanskrit Ramayana. Devotion and doubt blend to provide a moving portrayal of Sita, the daughter of the Earth, an eternal exile, who merges back into the Earth.

This a live show which will be live streamed out to various locations in Canada and India. For more information visit menakathakkardance.org.
