"In Hindu tradition, the human body is considered as a microcosm of the universe, where the latter is an amalgamation of the 5 elements. Lord Shiva, one of the most illustrious deities in the Hindu pantheon is said to be the personification of the universe with the 5 elements being derived from him.
Swayambhu is an ode to Lord Shiva, as the master the five elements, the omnipresent force which is present within each one of us and around us. The dancers performed amidst the very five elements– around lush greenery (earth) next to the reservoir (water) under the great sky (ether) in the open (air) with the rising sun (fire). This gave the choreography a new dimension, along with the 180-degree VR view and added graphic work, which echoes the notion of Lord Shiva being omnipresent. Truly a blend between tradition and technology, this collaboration has allowed us to present Swayambhu in a manner that we never had before."
