‘All the passion and cheesy plot devices of classic Bollywood musical cinema comes together in a production that sings, dances and even has a political edge …. at every turn of the plot, the cast breaks out into song. Big allegorical numbers that turn the city’s dusty streets into paths by rivers of gold.’ The production has won rave reviews and has been playing to capacity audiences and standing ovations across Europe.
ADITI MANGALDAS DANCE COMPANY
14th Sept– The Playhouse Company – Durban

Aditi Mangaldas is one of the foremost exponents of the Indian classical dance form Kathak .
Using the strength of this form she has attempted to carve out a contemporary vocabulary of her own. Her performances reflect the spirit of kathak and go beyond its form and content to create a new language.
The search for the intangible, may we call it God, truth, beauty, love or freedom, is the essence of UNCHARTED SEAS. Though I have separated the pieces, it is actually the entire production viewed in it’s entirety that tries to capture the essence of
' SEARCH'. Some are attempt to transform poetry into images or emotions. Others use abstractions of movement, light, space, rhythm ,ambience to evoke images asking the same questions."
