Corpo-Realities - T01673075583

At the forefront of Bharata Natyam in the UK, the performing company Sankalpam celebrates both tradition and change. For Corpo-realities, Sankalpam is working with artists from the fields of contemporary dance and theatre to create an intimate triple bill for five female dancers, pushing the boundaries of the Bharata Natyam form and celebrating its variety. Amongst the commissioned artists are former Southbank Centre resident choreographer, Stephanie Schober, whose precise and sophisticated choreography exposes the performers' desire to communicate with the viewer and others on stage, and Luca Silvestrini of Protein, whose translations of familiar life stories into surprising works of dance theatre contain both social commentary and humour. For the third piece, Stella Uppal Subbiah, Co-Artistic Director of Sankalpam, has collaborated with theatre director Phillip Zarrilli on an encounter with the psycho-physical process of abhinaya (internal acting)
