Exploring life through dance
"CROSSROADS JOURNEYS and transformations through life and dance" will be presented by Nirmala Seshadri and Neewin Hershall on August 8, at 7 p.m., at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, 37/39 East Mada Street, Mylapore (ph: 24940811). Will the exploration of the intrinsic nature of man and woman foster in better understanding? "Crossroads" explores the nuances of this eternal journey of differences, meetings and partings through the structure and function of dance.
Conceived by Nirmala Seshadri, "Crossroads" is a production that reflects the coming together of two mature and dedicated dancers, Nirmala and Neewin, as they share the synergy and blending of their artistic thoughts and energies.
The production also explores human emotions and angst through mathematical forms. It is also a meeting of dance with music, poetry, film and visual art.
