Title: Between tradition and modernity

Since its inception, Chowk Productions has sought to create a refined idiom of contemporary choreography that is distinctly Asian and unlike any other. Their work traces its lineage to Odissi (a classical dance form) and Chhau (a martial art), mapping their practice across different cultures and artistic influences. The relevance of traditional Asian practices is ever-pertinent to the contemporary performer today. The rigour of these forms and their unique aesthetic offers an alternative mode of articulating biomechanics to the modern performer that directly applies to the conditioning of one’s body and stage presence. This talk will focus on the aesthetic and practical relevance of traditional Asian forms and my process of translating the classical for contemporary performance today.
