In Pallavi & Space, Chowk Production’s Raka Maitra seeks to create dialogic contact between the abstract space of classical dance and the concrete interior space of the National Museum of Singapore.
Working within the conventions of the traditional Indian dance of Odissi, artistic director Maitra’s choreography navigates abstract spaces constructed through the rhythmic, melodic and geometric interventions of the performer’s body. The pallavi that emerges is an elaboration of these abstract spaces, nested within the unique performance space of the museum’s Gallery Theatre.
Dance, essentially, is the movement between abstract and concrete space, and time. It may also be, as in the case of Pallavi & Space, the flow between the old and the new.
