Temple of Fine Arts presents ‘Anthar AGNI the Fire within’ – Wednesday Aug 23, 2017 7.30pm Victoria Concert Hall
Fire (Agni) is a positive energy of the cosmos long embraced by cultures around the world since time immemorial. Worshipped as Surya Bhagavan (the Sun God) by Hindu farming nomads in ancient times, it is also known as God of the Flames to the wandering gypsies and the illuminating flames of love in Sufi philosophy.
Following the success of productions such as Water, Damaru and Taal Express, the Temple of Fine Arts’ latest presentation Anthar-Agni is a music tribute to the sacred fire, celebrating its deep spiritual significance as well as influence on Asian and European cultures. The concept blends percussive instrumentation, vocals, dance and a mesmerizing visual backdrop of silhouettes against a glowing sun.
