Thresh Dance (Contemporary Dance Theater)
Rukmini Vijayakumar (Bharatanatyam/Modern)

The evening explores the works of two dancers who are trained in both Bharatanatyam and Modern dance. Energetic, innovative and multi-talented Rukmini Vijayakumar will present two works – one from her Bharatanatyam repertoire and the other a modern work. Thresh Dance’s Savitri: Journey in Eternal Night is a duet between Preeti Vasudevan, a solo dancer and Kyra Gaunt, a vocalist representing the body and voice of Savitri in a dialogue with the formless figure of Death. This work is based on a canto from the epic poem Savitri, written by Indian mystic and freedom fighter Sri Aurobindo.
