With movements that reflect the motifs of Orissa Temple sculpture, Odissi is characterised by sensuousness and lyricism with Sriyah, Nrityagram Dance Ensemble dedicated to ancient practice but also involved in carrying Indian dance into the twenty first century. Sriyah has performed to sold-out shows from New York to Hawaii. This is a must see performance!
Shakespeare’s NOT King Lear
Theatre lovers are in for a treat with Nothing like Lear a performance based on Shakespeare’s King Lear. To see King Lear through the eyes of a clown is to see him as a man, as a father, as an outcast, as a child: to view a fool through the eyes of a fool. A single actor on stage, an old clown…an entire life lived within the tempest of the theatre.
India meets ROCK!
Advaita, an eclectic fusion band from Delhi, India has established itself as one of the most innovative and original acts on the Indian music scene. The band’s niche style of music in the global context blends Hindustani classical with the thrill of rock. The music of Advaita is further elevated by the synthesis of guitars, keyboards, drums, the tabla and the exotic drone of the Sarangi.
The God of Indian Violin
Musical genius, L Subramaniam, India’s leading violinist, known for his historic collaborations with artists like Stephane Grapelli, Yehudi Menuhin, Herbie Hancock, and his written and created works for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, The Berlin Opera and many other great musical houses, will once again share his brilliance with South African audiences.
Shared History, presented by the High Commission of India in South Africa and Teamwork Productions, prides itself on showcasing the finest and most exceptional that Indian culture and cuisine has to offer with this celebration of contemporary and classical music, dance, theatre, and food.
