Festival Details

Mudra is the only thematic dance festival of the NCPA which is presented around International Dance Day every year. Previously, Mudra has been curated on themes like motherhood, colours, bhakti poetry, animal movements, etc. This year, it explores a very unique theme—churning within and around.

History has witnessed many churnings—the Partition, natural disasters and pandemics. In 2022, we look back and ask ourselves pertinent questions. What is poison? What is amrit? And what have we gained in pursuit of it?

This festival looks at dance presentations featuring these learnings that over time have just made us stronger and wiser. Performances, lecture-demonstrations and more on samudra manthan as well as more recent churnings.

Box Office for Festival now Open.
