The presentation called ‘Tangled Path’ is a series of excerpts shared from the video work that is a work in progress.
The work is built upon technical groundwork of Indian Classical Dance Style- Bharatnatyam and Kathak. The movement work is built with a choreographed thread of a traditional Indian classical dance piece that is considered as one of the stepping stones for building technical movements that grounds the style of Bharatnatyam. It starts with introducing the elements of Bharatnatyam in their natural habitat and as the character unfolds further the movement is experimented with fusing Bharatnatyam, modern movements, yoga, vernacular gestures while keeping space open for improvising Indian Classical movements.
