"The mathematician's patterns, like the painter's or the poet's must be beautiful; the ideas like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way" – GH Hardy
Taking its name from the panchanadais: five basic jatis (rhythmic beats) that form the basis of Bharatanatyam dance, NUS Indian Dance's 28 celebrates the beauty of symmetry, geometry and proportion in art and nature.
In 28, Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer Mrs Santha Bhaskar draws inspiration from Da Vinci's The Vitruvian Man, the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci sequence, expressing these mathematical patterns through richly-textured visuals and original music in an evening of alluring classical Indian dance choreography.
