Finding Shiva & Discovering Devi A Journey to Oneself & The Beginning of a Journey

Author Name: Rukmini Vijayakumar, Anup J Kat | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Arts, Photography & Design | Other Details

What if I could imbibe my life with the clarity of thought, precision, control and simultaneous surrender that I am able to wield as a performer? Wouldn’t life change inexplicably for the better? 

I, Rukmini Vijaykumar, wanted to work with a friend who could perhaps capture moments that I am completely unaware of during the performative experience. In 2020, Anup and Vivian joined me on tour and captured our journey during a series of Shivaratri performances.  We created two books that describe this journey from two different perspectives: the performer’s perspective and the viewer’s perspective. Finding Shiva is written from the performer’s perspective while Discovering Devi conveys the viewer’s perspective through a selection of photographs.

I refrain from saying “experiencer of dance”, as the one dancing and the audience both experience the dance, therefore this phrase does not distinguish one from the other.
