Anamika – A Search For Krishna,  is ‘a lot of things’ begins Meghna Das, director of a show she calls ‘an attempt to find parallels between old stories relayed through classical dance forms, and modern day stories, thoughts and emotions, told through monologues.’ The concept was two years in the making, and after endless explorations and discussion with ‘anyone willing to listen’, Das created Anamika.
The performance will see Das joined by dancers, Preethi Bharadwaj, Pooja Pant and Ashiqa Salvan, for a collaboration of theatre and three classical dances of India – Bharatnatyam, Odissi and Kathak, exploring the characters of three women whose lives were touched by Lord Krishna. “The performance brings together four unique people with a passion for their art and performance. It is an attempt to break stereotypical pre-conceptions about classical dance being difficult to understand and relate to… through a modern universal theme of a woman’s search for something to put one’s faith into.”

Das also assures us that the dances have been choreographed to help you relate to the stories. Of course, if you are well-versed in the dance techniques you’ll enjoy it better she says. “This is a little piece of my heart that I get to put on stage with three of the most talented artistes I could find. I’m thrilled and petrified all at the same time,” she says in anticipation.
