SPACES, 1 Elliots Beach Road, Besant Nagar, Chennai
IFA grantee Vikram Iyengar premieres Across, Not Over, a performance that engages with the Kathak dance form in an essentially material way. The work fragments the Kathak body and re-presents it in newly-assembled poetics. It challenges the verticality of the form and the hierarchy of the feet. The exploration questions and re-frames notions of classicism and beauty by presenting the dancing body as an image of itself. The piece is choreographed by Preethi Athreya, also an IFA grantee.
The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with Sadanand Menon.
This production has been supported under IFA's Arts Practice Programme. Sumana Chandrashekar, Programme Executive, Arts Practice will be present on October 11 to answer all your queries about IFA and our programmes.
