Swan Lake Revisited

Mar 06, 2012, DHNS:

Unique Combination

The first Indo-French collaborated work based on Kathak, Classical ballet and Classical Jazz Dance, Swan Lake would be revisited at the Azad Bhawan in the city on March 7.

Across borders : Jazz dancers to give entralling performances during the event.An Indo-French Dance Production, Swan Lake Revisited will be presented by the Indian Council of Cultural Relations (ICCR).

Choreographed by the only living legend of classical Jazz dance Gianin Loringrett, the presentation will be performed by Yorma Loringett – Europe’s one of the finest tap dancer along with Mitul Sengupta in Kathak and Flamenco with the whole Rhythmosaic  Dance Company.

Gianin is the 3rd generation of the gurukul parampara system of Classical Jazz Dance and Ronnie Shambik Ghose is the 4th generation and the only practitioner of Classical Jazz Dance in India.

Mitul is the only performer in India who has created a unique movement system of using classical Kathak dance and Classical Jazz Dance in one body giving an entirely new dimension to her performance.

The importance of this collaboration is to bring a relationship between Classical Kathak and Classical Jazz. It is pertinent to point out that Classical Jazz Dance is the only dance form in the whole world which is very similar to Kathak.

Speaking about the event Ranjan Bakshi from ICCR says “The event is about the fusion of Classical Kathak and Classical Jazz dance, which is a unique combination in itself. There is a huge relationship between Classical Kathak and Classical Jazz dance and we are trying to bring the fusion of both on a single platform. It is going to be very unique and interesting performance.” he explains.

Swan Lake Revisited straddles two time zones, the endeavour being to strike a subtle balance between the lives and emotions of the epic Swan Lake and today’s Swan Lake. It celebrates the many hues of life through love, passion, virtue and vices which are an ever constant part of our world.

Swan Lake has evoked many thoughts and images over generations. Like a truly great epic, it has never failed to stir human sentiments with joy, passion, love and serenity. Yet, Swan Lake is also about the darkest of human emotions such as lust for power, obsession and greed.
