Dance of the Night Sky
Saturday 11th March 2006 at 12 noon Chaturangan launched its dance
installation programme "Dance of the Night Sky" for Liverpool
Planetarium. This is a Planetarium show based on an ancient Indian
myth about the origin of the Plough, the Pleiades and the double
stars Alcar and Mizar. The installation was shown every Sunday afternoon
through 2006 and 2007 at the Planetarium.
the museum show an intelligent and alchemical synthesis of dance,
myth and science. The show was not only very entertaining, but educational
on both a cultural and scientific level. The filmed dance/drama
performances projected onto the planetarium ceiling against a back
drop of the night sky showed high quality expressive / creative
Indian dance, which at the same time was traditional and highly
archetypal." - Paul Ishtar
