Grishma-Varsha-Shishir-Vasant is a work of choreographed poetry where dancers paint an external frame of seasons as seen and experienced. From within them arises the personal stories of anger and conflict; of love and pain; of void and isolation and of hope and celebration.
Grishma– the summer fire burns the forest as the inner conflict devours the man.
Varsha – the parched earth yearns for the rainfall, just the lover yearns for her beloved.
Shishir – the nothingness in life is what remains when everything is scattered away.
Vasant – the ritual of life continues relentlessly bringing hope and happiness
Choreographed by Vaibhav Arekar
