Shiv Yin was a rare performance bringing China and India together through dance and music. It is a beautiful love story that traverses the emotions of love, anger, jealousy and ultimate union, through a vibrant interpretation of classical Indian and contemporary Chinese dance forms. It explores the concept of the Male and the Female/ Yin and Yang through two distinct cultures.
In a larger context Shiv Yin searches for commonalities between two great civilizations.
