SPRING UTSAV

 

 

SILENT SPACE 

In Dance Ihayami's brand new work, performers both instigate and respond to sound, and its absence, trough movement, drawing deeply from the tradition of South Asian dance. Priya Shrikumar, Dance Ihayami's Artistic Director, explores the interaction between the voices and the bodies of performers, both responding to music and silence. 

Featuring original flute music by Marion Kenny and an exceptional ensemble of dancers, Silent Space is set to be an unforgettable spectacle of evocative rhythms, technical precision and striking geometry of Bharatanatyam. 

Choreography: Priya Shrikumar

Dancers: Gabriela Albornoz, Kirsten Newell, Seona Robinson, Priya Shrikumar, Siva Sivapatham, Karen Watts
