Men's fashion fair organized by Prasad Bidapa and Associates, Bangalore
based contemporary dance company Nritarutya was invited to open the collection
of one of India's leading designers, Hemant Trivedi. His set of designs
was divided into 3 segments.
The first concept
was 'Taoism,' where everything was in black and white. The 2 dancers of
Nritarutya, male and female, used the concept of Yin and Yang to depict
the nature of opposites.
concept was 'Sufism,' where the dancer used a lot of twirls with his hands
always pointing towards heaven and earth, in an authentic Sufi costume.
The third concept
was 'Voodoo.' The dancer was tattooed all over his torso to bring out the
mysterious nature of the voodoo man. The dancer used powerful spinal movements
along with jumps and kicks to bring out the mysticism of Voodoo.
The event took
place at the Bangalore palace, on October 14, 2006. The performance
was choreographed by Mayuri Upadhya and Sathya B G. The dancers were Sathya
B G, Madhuri Upadhya and Umesh Naidu.
