The choreographer attempts to work with the current vocabulary of Bharatanatyam and draw upon the ancient movement systems as well as contemporary thought processes to introduce the the ideas of body weight and momentum. The idea of fall and release and connecting movement through shifting weight will be explored. Thus allowing concepts in the Natyashastra as well as modern contemporary dance to shift the perspective of the initiation of movement in Bharatanatyam.
Musically and rhythmically the pieces use Carnatic music and utilize it’s rhythmic complexities to inform movement choices as is done traditionally in Bharatanatyam. The solo instrument is explored as opposed to the constant use of an ensemble in all pieces.
