An NCPA Presentation

Concept, Creative Director & Choreography: Ranjana Gauhar

The musical nritya natika (dance drama) Khud Mein Kabir Kabir Mein Hum is a presentation that touches upon the life and times in which Kabir lived in Banaras. The production is a fusion of his poems and bhajans performed to music which is both moving and touching. It has been dramatised with dialogues from eminent playwright Bhishma Sahni’s acclaimed drama Kabira Khada Bazaar Mein, which depicts the environment and struggles of Kabir in the medieval period. The dance drama will be rendered in a creative format with Odissi dance form as its base.
Ranjana Gauhar is a renowned Odissi dancer, guru and choreographer whose interests also include theatre and painting. She is also the Founder-President of Utsav – Educational & Cultural Society. Gauhar is well known for extensive training in
Chhau, Kathak and Manipuri and has also authored the book Odissi – The Dance Divine. She is a recipient of the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award from the President of India, Senior Fellowship for her research in the temple tradition of Odissi dance by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India, the Indira Gandhi Priyadarshini Award and Mahari Award among others.

Samanvay by Pooja Pant Dance Company

Samanvay explores the scope of choreography in fast paced, pure dance renditions that run along the time cycle, as well as in the gentle poise of the melodies that flow along the streams of rhythm.From the technical aspects of Kathak to the subjective perception of abhinaya, it encapsulates a synthesis of movements beyond space. Of stories beyond time.
Of searching for love in the dense grey clouds that contain within them, the waters of the oceans. Of planting hopeful seeds of tomorrow, in deserted yesterdays. Of carving promising narratives through the blossoms of spring.

Through dance, this confluence aims to bring together the learnings of the past and the seekings of tomorrow.

Pooja Pant is a performer, choreographer, mentor and Founder-Director of Pooja Pant Dance Company. Known for her technical finesse, delicate abhinaya and unique choreographies, she is the first Indian classical dancer to have performed at the Lawrence Olivier Awards in London. Holding a master’s degree in Kathak, Pant is a recipient of prestigious awards such as the V.D. Paluskar Award, Menaka trophy, Singaar Mani, and Nritya Nipun to name a few.
