Fusing digital art, dance, poems to create choreographic fictions

Bangalore: Mar 3, 2013 DH News Service

Bangalore Fictions, a  playful and poetic alliance of technology and dance, choreography and digital art, is all set to take off in the City on March 18.
The event will be brought alive by n+n Corsino Creations, an interactive choreographic team created in India and France.


A series of 12 fictions becomes the base of the choreographic pattern and will be presented as an exhibition. One among the team members, author Anjum Hasan said: “I contributed 12 poems in prose for Bangalore Fictions, each text connected to a particular, ordinary, everyday experience of Bangalore.

These could be the languages one hears in the City, the feel of a railway station at night, the people one sees in a mall, the way an outsider to Bangalore might negotiate it, the different ways old-timers remember the City, and so on. At the same time, these texts are philosophical reflections on the very idea of a city and what it might mean to live in one.”

Nicole and Norbert Corsino, the choreographers, worked on the new creation based on artistic and technology exchange with Indian partners they met in Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Delhi.

Their choreographic fictions are presented in the form of films and installations, without the real presence of dancers.  Each of these installations is the result of a choreographed sequence, danced live and filmed from all angles.

These non-conventional composers of choreographic fictions lead us into a lighter world, almost aquatic, where the spectator can interact with certain works and dance while caressing images in movement on a touch screen.

Among the other participating artistes are dancers Revanta Sarabhai and Pooja Purohit, calligraphist Amit Kharsani, illustrator Tudu Saheb Ram and five musicians from the Darpana Centre for Performing Arts.

The performance will be held on March 18, from 7 pm to 9 pm at GallerySke, 2, Berlie Street, Langford Town.  The related works will be on display at the gallery till March 21, from 11 am to 7 pm.

The event is organised by Alliance Française de Bangalore in association with GallerySky, the Embassy of France in India and the Institut Français.
