Exploration of infinities through dance

Dance is the hidden language of the soul. A stress buster, a physical exercise, it is definitely one of the best remedies to revive the lost energies within oneself. Celebrating his own personal fondness for dance, R Sreenivasan, co-founder of Career Launcher, organised the third edition of a dance photography exhibition titled ‘Spandan’ at the India Habitat Centre, recently.

Someone who has been exploring the outdoors for as many as 24 years, Sreenivasan organised the exhibition with the sole purpose of giving a chance to the infinite potential that exists in each one of us.

Centrally placed at the Stein Auditorium of IHC, one doesn’t experience the usual gamut of emotions while viewing the exhibition. People suddenly come across this photography collection by chance, while on their way to a restaurant or when visiting the centre for some other purpose. It is the very abrupt appearance of the exhibition that surprises viewers the most. There is a distinct reason for locating the exhibition in such a manner, as Metrolife learns.

Comments Sreenivasan, “An exhibition in an art gallery will be visited by only those who know about it or those who have a specific purpose. Having it established in the open not only invites a larger amount of viewers but also generates a gust of emotions within them.”

While relishing the open ambience and the serene surroundings of the India Habitat Centre, people tend to ackno­wledge the installations of Spandan by their own personal choice. “When someone can relate themselves with these images, my whole purpose behind it is successfully accomplished!” he rejoices.

Being an eminent educationist himself, it appears quite surprising for a person like him to host something this enormous, on the creative front. “Over the years, all the areas that I explored myself in are those for discovering my own infinite potential. While Spandan is a welcoming attempt to celebrate the World Dance Day, it is at the same time the exploration of the infinity through dance,” he tells Metrolife.

It is interesting to discover the hidden connotations behind Spandan, which is a compilation of some perfectly timed and beautifully captured portraits of dancers, who in the words of the curator, “are people who have pursued their passions and have reached an inspirational stage in their lives.” He further remarks, “Very few people are able to give shape to the ‘dazzle’ within them. Spandan, as an inspirational endeavour. It is something for which I’ve personally always had the spark for. Moreover, I don’t want to have any regrets in life when I turn 80, about not having accomplished something that I love!”

The exhibition concludes with a delightful evening of dance on May 25 which will comprise young individuals who feel passionately about dance. Where ‘Dance Photography’ as a genre had negligible impact on its viewers, it has now evolved with time and “there is an army of dance photographers” Sreenivasan tells Metrolife.

On being asked if he has plans to take it forward, he boastfully replies, “If it can ignite that passion in people who are walking around to question themselves and explore the infinity, then I could do quite a few things in the boundaries far beyond!”

The exhibition is on till May 25.
