Taking the South Indian classical dance form of Bharatanatyam with its intricate rhythmic footwork, expressive prowess, geometric and dynamic movements, award-winning choreographer Seeta Patel takes on the challenge of reimagining the iconic Rite of Spring for an international cast of Bharatanatyam dancers.
Set to be one of the most exciting flirtations between East and West in current times, the production will look beyond notions of the exotic and orientalist perceptions of Eastern classical arts.
The evening will showcase some of the finest Indian classical dance talent across the globe in an exciting bridge between two very technical, powerful and evocative art forms (Western classical music and Indian classical dance).
