Inhabiting, inhabited. The invisible movements of a soul can be seen only in the moment when it resides in the flesh. This could be called dance. Reaching back beyond “the traditions” to arrive at “the primitive” is the key to this creation. Inspired by the traditional folklore of Japanese ghost stories, Inhabitation reflects the ever-changing histories of humanity. Can our instincts be the basis for another kind of reality that points towards an inner truth?

Moving with and beyond bharatanatyam, this contemporary Indian solo strives to connect the complex meanings and points of focus (mudhra/nritta) of urban and cultural experience. At the convergence of emotion, technique and meaning, Meena Murugesan emanates a compelling intensity which drives her richly textured movement aesthetic.

GRIST
William Yong/ Zata Omm Dance Projects






Length : 16 minutes
Box Office

Choreographer: William Yong / Zata Omm Dance Projects
Performer: William Yong
Original Music : Andrea Rocca
Dramaturgy: Tedd Robinson
Video Design : Ryan Otake
Original Lighting Design by : Arun Srinivasan

Grist is a soliloquy on personal experience, a portrayal of inward musings and a journey tracing personal memory, as recalled when long distant from where one belongs. A Proustian gestalt, it integrates contemporary dance, voice and video design to create a collection of random, vivid memories and reflections on the pride and guilt of self-identity. This is a complex psychological journey about fascination and bewilderment, a recollection tracking its own roots and heritage.
