Pavithra presents the oldest collection of Indian fables and the most popular work of literature, the Panchatantra. Authored by Pandit Vishnu Sharma and narrated to three young princes, these delightful stores transformed them from impolite and dull sons of the King to wise and successful heirs of the kingdom!
Pavithra has interwoven elements of dance, music, theater, poetry and literature; converting these tales into creative , poignant messages of wisdom and strength.
Compiling select verses from Srimad Valmiki's immortal epic Ramayana, Pavithra vividly portrays Lord Hanuman's celebrated journey to Lanka in search of Sita, who was kidnapped by Ravana. She seamlessly transforms into multiple characters--Rama, Sita, Hanuman and Ravana, wonderfully capturing the nuances in abhinaya. Pavithra brings to life the form of Hanuman, portraying him without any mask!
What's the ultimate purpose of human life? How does one find everlasting freedom from unhappiness?
Drawing upon enlightening narratives and verses from the Upanishads and Gita shastra, Pavithra explores the ultimate pursuit of the self and the secret of limitless freedom.
Based on the compositions of Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati, this thematic production glorifies each deity in the family of Lord Shiva. Through an imaginative framework of the traditional "margam" of Natya and music, Pavithra depicts interesting stories and profound truths from the Puranas.
Drawing inspiration from Vedanta, Pavithra writes,
" In the landscape of life
Through the brush of melody, mime and movements
With tints and shades of colors of various experiences
to the highest happiest reality
I paint the journey of Ananda!"
Transforming this poetry into her thematic production, Pavithra explores the many facets of human life and man's constant search for happiness.
Om Namah Shivaya
Pavithra's sixth solo production, Om Namah Shivaya made it debut during the 2018-2019 Margazhi Festival. In her Salutations to the Auspicious One, Pavithra extols five significant facets of Shiva-- the creator of the rhythmic syllables, the ruler of time, the first teacher of yoga, the object of Parvathi's love and finally as the Supreme teacher of Brahma Vidya.
