Primal rhythmic energy and the impossible union of opposites: Tandava sees the coalescence of Scottish guitarist Simon Thacker’s startlingly passionate sound-worlds with the infinitely expressive physicality of three gifted dancers from India’s Piah Dance Company. Tandava finds exhilaration in uniting polarities: explosive guitar wizardry and stunningly intricate footwork with hauntingly beautiful melodies and delicately fluttering fingers; multi-layered choreography and ecstatic rhythms of unstoppable momentum with sounds of timeless fluidity and movements of sublime serenity. A revelatory exploration of the expressive power of the visible and invisible, dance and music.


Thursa Sanderson, Chief Executive of Drake Music Scotland and one of Made in Scotland 2023 panellists, talks about the reasons why Tandava was selected to be a part of the MiS showcase.
