Dance performances recounting Devdas
Jaipur, 16 February: A two-day contemporary dance performance, ‘ISSHH (क)’ began today at ‘Rangayan’ at Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK) in partnership with ‘A Pro Helvetia’ – Swiss Arts Council presentation.
ISSHH (क) draws upon Devdas, a novel recounting the ill-fated love story of Devdas, written by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay. On an empty stage with the dancers of the Attakkalri Dance Company, the show conceptualizer and choreographer, Nicole Seiler delves into a century of acoustic perceptions, taking us on a choreographic -cinematic voyage that questions the infinite possibilities of our imagination.
Performances by Hemabharathy Palani, Parth Bhardwaj, Sylvester Mardi, Meghna Nambiar, Snigdha Prabhakar, Akshata Ravindra Joshi, Anindita Ghosh were a part of the show’s choreography.
Nicole Seiler studied dance and theater at the Scuola Teatro Dimitri in Verscio (CH), the Vlaamse Dansacademie in Brugges (BE) and at Rudra Béjart in Lausanne (CH). Her research into multi-media which marries dance and video, gives rise to multifaceted dance performances, videos and choreographic installations.
