The dance dramaShiv-Yin,featuring the cooperation of India and China, is co-choreographed by noted Indian choreographer Rukmini Chatterjee and Chinese dance artist TengAimin, Head of Beijing MunicipalContemporary Dance Troupe. “It is a beautiful love story that traverses the emotions of love, anger, jealousy and ultimate union, through a vibrant interpretation of classical Indian and contemporary Chinese dance forms. It explores the concept of the male and the female, known in Chinese as Yin and Yang through two distinct cultures. In a larger context, Shiv-Yin searches for commonalities between two great civilisations.” Rukminisaid. It’s a great inheritance andinnovation.
