SAMYOGA is a thematic Bharatanatyam duet performance illustrating the bond between man and woman. The concept of hero and heroine dominates in most Indian epics, in Hindu mythology, and in literature works. The Natya Shastra also refers the bond and the characteristic aspects of a hero (nayaka) and Heroine (nayika). These Nayikas are further classified in two varieties of the shringara rasa (emotion of Love), the rasa related to love: sambhoga (love in union) and vipralambha (love in separation). The eight types of nayikas elaborates the reactions and emotions by the love of her beloved at various situations. SAMYOGA brings out the various emotions which are reflected through the love of a man & woman.
