This dance presentation offers an understanding of the controversial lives of Devadasi’s, who were temple dancers of ancient India, and were ‘ritually wedded ‘ to the Lord. Originally held in high esteem, their status degenerated to a point where temple dancing was legally banned and they were forced into oblivion. But a dance that enriches the soul and uplifts the spirits, could not be held back. The Devadasi’s were eventually able to reinstate their divine art.
