“What the audience got to see was dance as a language, not just a repertoire.” – The Hindu Newspaper, February 2023

A new solo dance creation conceptualized and choreographed by the eminent Indian classical dancer Malavika Sarukkai, Anubandh – Connectedness imaginatively reworks tradition and is a path-breaking work in the language of the classical Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam.

Exploring the essential relationship between nature and life, Anubandh recognizes our primal ties with the Sun and the Moon, as well as the Five Great Elements as they are honored in India: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Space. Personal, bold and intense, this production explores the human condition arising from pleasure, violence, loneliness, isolation and sorrow. At a time of uncertainty in a fractured world, Anubandh is a call to the transformative power of hope.

Anubandh brings together a spectrum of celebrated musicians recorded by Music Producer Sai Shravanam, and features an innovative light design created by Niranjan Gokhale.
