    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. 

    Co-production:  Schaubuhne am Lehniner Platz, Berlin Theatre de la Ville, Paris (The second 'u' in schaubuhne has two dots.  The 'e' in theatre and the 'a' following it have an accent and a cap respectively.) 
    Choreography: Padmini Chettur, Music: Maarten Visser, Lighting: M Natesh,  
    Dancers: Padmini Chettur, Krishna Devanandan, Malini Srinivasan, Sujata Goel,
