Drishti // Guardians of Direction
FRIDAY 29th November
How do we get where we are going? and how do we tell others how to find us?
Guardians of Direction is the working title for a new dance performance by Reading's own Drishti Dance presented as a work in progress showing as part of Dance Reading 2019.
Drawing on classical hindu mythology around particular deities associated with the cardinal directions found on a compass, this contemporary performance breaks down the conventions of classical Kathak and aims to find a new language within which present day parables can be told.
This event is the culmination of a research & development project in collaboration with a dramaturg, producer and visual artist to explore new ways for Drishti to create performance. The 30 minute performance will be followed by a Q&A about the process and results.
