Attached to the traditions and and get away from them at the same time is what Svarupaya is aiming to, creating a danced musical artistic form.
Artists origines and personalities are questioning each other and mixing into a dialogue.
Along with the music of the sitar and percussions, Jyotsna Liyanaratne propose a choreography where she uses the forces of the ritual, circle, dances in the traditions she explored.
The classicism confronts itself to the present time and the improvisations.
Savarupaya ( ස්වරූපය ) : singhalese word, its sanscrit root Svarupa ( स्वरूप sva-rūpa )means: in its own form, the essence of its nature.
