The acclaimed Mudra Dance Company are back to perform at the Whitireia Theatre in Wellington in the dramatic new production of Kartikeya.

Kartikeya is the younger son of Lord Shiva, and is the beloved deity of the Tamil people. There is not a village in South India, however small, which does not possess a shrine to this powerful deity. Kartikeya, the warrior son of Lord Shiva, is cosmologically linked to the Pleiades, the cluster of six stars that lie in a nearby area of our galaxy, 400 light years distant. As the god of war, Kartikeya is the destroyer of demons. Kartikeya crushes evil forces - external and internal - removes ignorance, and bestows eternal knowledge.

Kartikeya will be a kaleidoscope of motion, colour, music, mime, and rhythm. The dances highlight Kinra’s choreography which combines innovative and traditional elements of dance. Characterised by exotic beauty and charm, Mudra Dance Company is a visual feast of brilliant sari colours, traditional headdresses of braids and flowers, and the sparkle of gorgeous jewellery.

Mudra Dance Company will excite the audience with fast-moving dramatic dance pieces that will showcase the incredible talent of this highly regarded dance company.
