Attakkalari’s upcoming multimedia dance production ‘AadhaaraChakra – a Dancelogue’ will premiere on November 23 at Ravindra Kalakshetra.

It is a hybrid ‘performance event’, weaving in multiple disciplines — movement, film, light, plastic arts, multimedia design and sound.

Set in an imagined land and oscillating between the past and present, the work invites the audience to partake in a ritualised experience. It is also a curtain raiser to the ‘Attakkalari India Biennial 2013’ and ‘Facets’ choreography residency.

Conceived and directed by Jayachandran Palazhy, and choreographed by him and the dancers, ‘AahaaraChakra – A Dancelogue’ is performed by Attakkalari’s renowned ‘Repertory Company’.

Music composers Sam Auinger and Martin Lutz from Germany modulate classical Indian music, hawkers’ cries, and popular cinematic strains using urban imagination to create an evocative soundscape. Film images, shot by Rupert Schwarzbauer from Germany, morph versatile architectural spaces designed by Dominic Dube from Canada.

The light design by Pipon from France provides surprise elements, which interact with Ken Ferudata’s from Japan digital design.

This production is supported by Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan and has been created within the framework of ‘Germany and India 2011–2012: Infinite Opportunities’.

The project also has the support of the Japan Foundation, Ministry of Culture, Government of India; Indian Council for Cultural Relations, The Archaeological Survey of India and Atmosphere.
