CONTEMPORARY DANCE (GROUP) - “FRAGILITY” (70mins)
Trained in Bharatanatyam, PADMINI CHETTUR has been a part of the movement to modernise Indian dance for the past twelve years. She has worked as a dancer with the Chandralekha group while at the same time developing her own identity as a soloist and a choreographer. Her work is always to do with bridging the gaps between our classical memories and our contemporary selves, to do with redefining form.
The work explores fragility at a conceptual and formal level – the moments of abandoning strength to confront weakness, the moments of recognition that speak more clearly than words, this performing world of held breaths, trembling muscles and implicit emotion – fragility.
