East meets West to bring to life the shades of love in Shakespeare’s plays, through dance

“For the Love of Dance” presents contemporary interpretations of the relationship between lovers in Romeo + Juliet, Othello, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew and A Midsummer Night’s Dream through the ancient Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam.

Bharatanatyam finds its roots in the temples of Southern India and derives its name from the elements Bhava (expression), Raga (melody) and Thala (rhythm). It is these modes the dancers wield to present a production with its roots in the heritage of both Eastern and Western cultures.

Yatra, meaning journey, are a group of dancers who have learnt Bharatanatyam both in India and New Zealand, and have come together out of a common passion for the art form. In a venture to share this with a wider audience, they bring to you “For the Love of Dance” which pushes the envelope through fusion music, lighting and narrative, while remaining true to tradition and discipline in the choreography of the dance itself.
