India Dance Festival: Bhavana Reddy
20.00 Korzo Studio X
|Part of||India Dance Festival|
International artist-in-residence shows new sides of Kuchipudi dance
Due to the current situation regarding Covid-19 in India, dancer Bhavana Reddy cannot complete her virtual residency. Therefore her performance on 8 May 2021 will be cancelled. Ticket holders will be personally notified. We are currently looking for a suitable alternative.
Powerhouse Kuchipudi dancer Bhavana Reddy stems from a legendary dance family and has been performing on the (international) stage since the tender age of 4. The New York Times praised her wonderful virtuosity, great footwork and tender liveliness. According to The Hindu, she dances "like lightning."
Korzo has invited Bhavana Reddy for a digital residency. Together with Leo Spreksel, curator of the India Dance Festival, she will work digitally on a contemporary Kuchipudi piece. Central theme of this new piece will be the age of Kali (Kali Yuga). Bhavana will also present a classical Kuchipudi piece.
Bhavana Reddy was marvelously judicious. Her percussive footwork enhanced the taped music, her floor patterns and gestures dramatized its spirit with tender vivacity.
