Nirupama & Rajendra

ABHISAAR feat. Nirupama & Rajendra
Friday 12 May 2017
The Capstone Theatre, Liverpool
ABHISAAR tells the story of ”Pursuit ” in Nature, Culture and Emotions. The theme derives its inspiration from the concept of Abhisaara from Indian literature. Philosophically, it is the search within oneself for realising the Eternal Beauty. It blends classical Kathak with the special movement vocabulary from the Natyashastra re-energised with contemporary sensibilities. Abhisaar is performed as duets to original musical scores created specially for the production by great maestros of music in multiple genres. Here, technique meets precision, emotion meets expression and Art connects to the hearts!
A stunning new dance production featuring Nirupama and Rajendra, Artistic Director’s of Bangalore’s Abhinava Dance Company. With dynamic musical collaborations with some of the best maestros in Indian music, this show is an amazing amalgamation of music and dance which creates a truly unique, progressive piece of art.

‘Abhisaar’ is that beautiful journey that one sets out on in pursuit of something more, transcending the world around them. Abhisaar is the one who moves ahead in pursuit of a goal. Just as rivers flow to the ocean and as maestros compose music that moves them towards enlightenment, this production depicts a series of beautiful journeys including that of two heroines from India’s classic historical tales, Radha and Vasanthasena, and that of Gandhi in his famous Salt Sathyagraha (Salt March).

Everything, everybody is in search of a something beautiful; something to complete the self. Abhisaar combines popular Indian dance form Kathak with the most beautiful musical soundtrack which is sure to produce a meditative yet enthralling thematic masterpiece.
