An NCPA Presentation
Bharatanatyam and Balinese by Lata Pada & Sampradaya Dance Creations
Kathak by Shama Bhate and Nadroop
(Approx. 120 mins)
In a presentation made for international dance audience, acclaimed Toronto-based dancer-choreographer Lata Pada presents Bharatanatyam in a new light. Pralaya, presented by Sampradaya Dance Creations, Canada’s award-winning South Asian dance company, is an artistic collaboration incorporating Balinese dance. Emotionally powerful and artistically distinctive, Pralaya transports you to a world of mystery, myth and magic, where Pada and reputed Balinese dance scholar and choreographer I Wayan Dibia join forces in a remarkable contemporary multi-media production. Shama Bhate presents a vibrant Kathak presentation, Nishabda Bheda, inspired by French documentary, Le Monde Du Silence, by Jacques Cousteau and Louis Malle. One is constantly exploring the silence within, sometimes knowingly but sometimes without being conscious of it…Trying to seek balance, striving for solace, wanting to touch something that is intangible, but omnipresent, prodding the depths of human mind’s space. In this choreography, Bhate relates to the infinite space she sees, through the forms, movements, music and even the total lack of it.
