Rananís performance piece is doubly inspired by the life, music and writings of and on Beethoven, and Vikram Sethís novel Ė An Equal Music. Two letters form the core of this performance. One written by Julia, the protagonist of An Equal Music, to her fellow musician and lover Michael; the other written by composer Ludwig Van Beethoven to his brothers. Both  deal with the pain of inevitable and irretrievable loss as their writers come to terms with their growing deafness - a loss all the more poignant since it involves the one sense central to the world of music that both individuals - one from contemporary fiction and one from European musical history - inhabit. This combination of text, movement, Kathak and Beethovenís music explores the many individual and collective, personal and epic textures arising out of this deep sense of loss. Beethovenís music evokes all these and so much more of human experience with unbelievable insight, nuance, power and passion.
