DetailsA Mind's Journey in Search of Destiny
explores the creative genius and the conflicting urges that drive an artist. Tradition, self-doubt and wavering courage rein in the artist from full expression of creativity. Improvised from classical north-east Indian Manipuri dance, the performers express the âfeminineâ and flexible as much as the âmasculineâ and rigid forces acting upon an individual. This production resonates beyond the uncertainties of a person moving from a valued but traditional society into a more liberal but alien one, commenting on the self-belief and insecurities lying beneath the artistic impulse. The ancient Manipuri dance form, rooted in a small, isolated area of the Himalayas, is little-known. The dance is indivisibly linked with Hindu religious practices and strictly-defined traditional movements combine gentle âfeminineâ movements (Lasya) with stronger âmasculineâ ones (Tandava) to express all aspects of life and creation.Performers Carrie Syckelmoore, Yentl de Wart, Anwesha Ahmed.
