Zia Nath


Performance: Sacred Sufi dance

Realms of Dance™ is a spectacular presentation of Sacred Dance & Whirling Mandala™, rendered to music and poetry of renowned artists and mystics. Inspired from ancient sculpted stories of the Temples of Orissa, and the wild abandon of spinning gypsies of India and Asia. These dances are tales of love suspended in the realms of sensuality and spirituality.

Zia has practised the Sacred Dances of Ancient Indian and Esoteric Sufi Temples for more than two decades in pursuit of an inner calling.

In 2007, she established her dance company and show Sufi Splendour, which weaves a tapestry of lyrical Odissi Indian dances and Sufi whirling embossed with the poetry of Mevlana Rumi. Zia has presented Sufi Splendour at festivals and events in India, China and the United Arab Emirates.

Zia is of Indian origin and lives and works in Mumbai. She also teaches the Sufi and Gurdjieff Sacred Dances that originate from the ancient secret sufi temples of the Middle East. She has been a Craniosacral Therapist by profession since 1999.
