Dancing the different moods

Dancing the different moods
Nritarutya, a Bangalore-based Indian contemporary dance group, presents Prayog 4, a unique dance production using classical dance forms, martial arts and yogic discipline on 4 April at Kamani Auditorium. Prayog 4 is based on Indian philosophies and their relevance to present times.

The three dance presentations featuring in Prayog 4 are Matsyaangnaa, Trishanku and Chakra. Matsyaangnaa and Trishanku incorporate Bharatanatyam movements in their execution whereas Chakra incorporates Bharatanatyam, Kathak and folk movements.

The production comprises of musicians, designers, dancers, visual artists, singers, and actors amounting to more than 50 artistes of India.

Matsyaangnaa depicts the indulgence of six classifications or enemies which prevent a human from attaining Moksha.

The fluidity of Matsyaangnaa will be matched with the swiftness of Trishanku, who was stuck between heaven and hell and got a new world to inhabit though upside down due to the sins he committed.

The finale of the evening is with Chakra, been choreographed with belief system of what goes around comes around.

Prayog has effectively used technology, classical dance, movement, martial arts, poetry and storytelling to create works of art.

In its format of short, powerful pieces, Prayog gives the choreographers and the dancers a forum for experimentation, pushing the boundaries of their bodies as dancers and of the art as a discipline. Not an event to be missed. Head over!
