“The performance was like an abstract painting packed with layers of meaning with different levels of understanding. At one level it talked about personal space and public space and at another level it showed how technological advancement in communication had actually widened the gap between two individuals.”
– The Hindu, Madurai, October 05, 2016
Watch as the mechanics of the body are unravelled in this unique performance, as a group of people negotiate the force of gravity within their bodies – through the act of jumping!
Jumping as a physical act is not just common in artistic forms such as dance and theatre but also in other disciplines such as sports and martial arts. Preethi has worked with ten people from diverse backgrounds including boxing, parkour, theatre, fitness, classical dance, jazz and ballet, to compose this intriguing performance piece on our bodies.
This performance is brought to you with Devika S, Dipna Daryanani, Maithily Bhupatkar, Nidhi Misra, Prabu Mani, Pravin Kannanur, Preethi Athreya, Sekher Narayanan, Sruthi Sriram, Vasanth Selvam.
This performance received support from India Foundation for the Arts, under its Arts Practice programme; the Alliance Francaise of Madras and Spaces, Chennai.
Grant showcases of India Foundation for the Arts in Mumbai are supported by the Bajaj Group.
