About the performance:
Kolam is a more than a thousand year old living tradition that stays in almost every household. It is a ritual for Indian women to wake up at early hours of the morning to draw a beautiful kolam in front of their houses.
Scientists and mathematicians often talk about elegant equations or proofs that are simple yet profound, representing secrets of the universe, through their intrinsic beauty and various interpretations. Similarly, Kolams are ancient drawings with patterns that are aesthetically beautiful and mathematically inclined, while also representing deeper philosophies and life lessons.
Women are taught rangoli even before they are taught mathematics, yet their symmetry is to the point. This has marvelled mathematicians across the world.
In this performance, we will have Laya Lavanya, a percussion ensemble along with other musicians bringing in beats with a specific pattern, that will then be represented by the rangoli artists.
