Journey to Divinity is a classical dance recital portraying the eternal journey of human soul towards divinity .It is based on Swami Vivekananda’s philosophy proclaiming that each soul is potentially divine and the struggle is to maintain its divinity. This takes a kaleidoscopic view of Swamiji’s philosophy based on Karma (action) gyan (knowledge) and bhakti (devotion). This interpretation is in narrative form; classical dance in conventional sense but includes commentary and visuals.

 Shubhada Varadkar a disciple of the Late Padmavibhushan Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra . She is an exponent of Indian classical dance, Odissi. Her dance is a fascinating union of eloquent expressions, graceful movements and captivating postures. An ‘A’ graded National artist and an empanelled artiste with ICCR, Shubhada is a recipient of many prestigious awards and a fellowship from the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. Shubhada’s dance productions are acknowledged for their rich tapestry of music, choreography and literature.
