Event Description

Exordium – Modern Indian Dance Theatre Exordium is a contemporary dance festival curated and performed by Vishwakiran Nambi Dance company. Exordium aims to bring to the foray experimental modern Indian dance that explores concepts of contemporary India. It is an idea that brings together several movement philosophies together; creating a landscape for technology to marry dance and conceptual movement designs.

Introduction to the pieces:

Jaaga Illa

Jaaga illa stemmed out of the dire need to find expression to the pent-up concerns and frustrations of congestion in a metropolitan like Bengaluru. The piece reflects the concepts of congestion by recreating the popular visuals of packed busses, temples and ticket counters. The piece also hints at migratory patterns which could suggest the root cause of the issue leading to congestion. The choreographer collaborates with ‘Trika studio’ for Projection mapping for the 3rd time, which is a collaboration of fond interest to him. Jaaga aims to seamlessly bring dance and technology together to engage with the audience, the concepts of modern civilisation.

Yele Oota

Yele Oota explores the inequalities in the distribution and consumption of food. The idea of (over) consumption is discussed through elaborately choreographed conceptual theatrical bits and dynamic rhythmic dances. The piece begins by focussing on the sun being the ultimate symbol of generosity and urges the watcher to emulate the behaviour. It moves on to present concepts like greed, division, accumulation, and servitude and ends with the evils of gluttony. The piece also greatly explores the theme of food wastage and the impact it has on the hunger scale of the modern world.
