Padme is a contemporary Indian dance performance produced by dancer, actor and arts’ administrator Anita Ratnam and choreographed by Netherlands-based dancer, Kalpana Raghuraman. Among other highlights, Padme brings together dancers from different dance schools and training styles and backgrounds.
Padme attempts to explore the hidden and the unhidden; the flowering and the unflowering … The lotus becomes the metaphor for the possibility of an expression and an experience! In this work, ancient Indian dance and Western modern dance mix, coalesce, intersect to mirror the dancers’ own specific experiences with religion and the relevance of spirituality in the world we live in.

Rhythmosaic Sengupta Dance Company presents DESOLATE - THE VOICES OF THE TRAPPED
Choreography, Ronnie Shambik Ghose & Dr. Mitul Sengupta
The piece celebrates the voices of those in the society of mistaken identities, confused genders, settled issues on unsettled conditions, we live free yet brutally trapped within. It revolves around this confused paradigm of life, where we are always living in contraption. It breathes the displaced situation of the damned souls, who are being constantly interrogated by the society, be it gender, transgender, third sex, the unsettled, the trapped. It is the dance of the desolate and song of the voices, which echoes from the deep within “that we are trapped, unheard off and desolate.”
Performers: Ronnie Shambik Ghose, Prasanna Saikia, Mitul Sengupta
Scenography: Swarup Dutta & Pritha
Concept & Direction: Ronnie Shambik Ghose
