ARŪPA

Bharatanatyam encounters Odissi, as seen through the lens of contemporary dance and of these dancemakers’ experiences. Like two contemplative warriors, they move from invocation to evocation. Body, memory, thought, images, traces exist somewhere between form and formlessness in their shapeshifting dance. Following the patterns of a yantra, a ritualized geometric space inspired by diagrams and games, they construct an architecture of sound and movement: an imaginary temple.
