Folly and Time by Raghav Handa

In Indian tradition, dance and music are part of the same art form.

Through an ancient symbiosis, the dancer absorbs and responds to the music and the musician feeds on the energy and vibrancy of the dancer.

The musician sets the initial cadence and the dancer “ups the ante” through movement as a game unfolds between the two. Created in collaboration with award winning Australian cinematographer, Martin Fox, and dhol master, Maharshi Raval,

Folly and Time uses a matrix of relationships between three characters (two virtual and one physical), to investigate this game. It explores how a relationship can be real and intimate even when the musician is physically removed and how the mystery of symbiosis can be maintained and showcased between two virtual performers.

This performace will be followed by a Q&A.
