Chi Udaka | Sydney Opera House

18 Oct 2023 to 21 Oct 2023



The deep earthiness of taiko drumming (Chi / Earth) and the flowing elegance of Indian classical dance (Udaka / Water) fuse in this energetic live experience. At turns delicate and dramatic, it unites the taiko of Taikoz, the shakuhachi from Riley Lee, John Napier’s cello and Aruna Parthiban’s classical Indian vocals with Lingalayam’s contrasting Bharatha Natyam and Kuchipudi dance styles.

This dynamic percussion and dance performance is a collaboration between two well-established Australian companies Taikoz and Lingalayam. The vocabulary of both companies is steeped in history and tradition and they come together in an eruption of colour, rhythm, dance and music.

As part of the Sydney Opera House’s 50th Birthday Festival, Chi Udaka is a collaborative and joyful celebration of art forms coming together.
