Mavin Khoo & Temple of Fine Arts

Mon 25 November, 07:30 PM, Sadler's Wells

Session 1

Accompanied by female musicians, an all-male Bharatanatyam ensemble from the Temple of Fine Arts Inner Space Dance perform choreography by Mavin Khoo. Vocalist Chitra Poornima and the musicians draw from the musical tradition of Bhajan hymns alluding to the spirit of Lord Rama. This new work explores three scenes from the Sanskrit epic Ramayana; the abduction of Sita, the building of the bridge by Rama’s army of monkeys and the killing of the demon God Ravana.

In the words of Akram Khan, who is curating Darbar Festival’s 2019 dance program, “there’s something universal about narratives from ancient Indian history – the grand themes, the shared myths, the flawed deities. Indian dancers place themselves in the shoes of gods as well as mortals...you should feel like you’re all learning together rather than being taught”.
