Attakkalari India Biennial: 2017
ISSHH(K) explores the links between sound and image; cinema and stage. It's a work of choreographic research questioning the idea of the group, and the requirements to create a 'common' body.
ISSHH(K) draws upon Devdas, a novel recounting the ill-fated love story of Devdas, written by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, which has been widely translated and adapted for cinema.
On an empty stage with the dancers of the Attakkalari Dance Company (Bengaluru, IN), Nicole Seiler delves into a century of acoustic perceptions, taking us on a choreographic-cinematic voyage that questions the infinite possibilities of our imagination.
This performance is presented at the Attakkalari India Biennial 2017 with the support of Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council.
This performance is part of Attakkalari India Biennial 2017, the 8th edition of South Asias largest and most important international festival for contemporary movement arts organised by Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, being held at multiple venues across Bengaluru from 03 to 12 February, 2017.
