About the Concert
Plato in his Allegory of the Cave says that human beings live in a shadowed world of half truths, believing that to be the reality. Journey out of this cave leads to the discovery of reason, truth, beauty and justice in their pure forms. Although it is a visually arresting allegory, we are excited to see how such a philosophical idea comes into dance using the stunning choreography of Maya Kulkarni – both steeped in depth of tradition and unbound from traditional thought processes – and the transcendent dance style of Mesma Belsaré.
The Quarantine Effect
For a new piece or production, new costumes, choreography, music, must all be created. Given our environment today, it must now all be created in quarantine as well.
