Featuring Dancers and Musicians from the UK & Singapore
An innovative and fascinating dance production exploring some of South Asia’s most famous and beautiful architectural monuments. Nirmanika, meaning architectonics in Sanskrit, uses the expressive nature of Bharatanatyam to deconstruct and re-create great and ancient monuments, such as India’s Taj Mahal, and Indonesia’s Borobudur Monument.
Through Bharatanatyam’s unique movements and expression, Nirmanika touches on concepts of geometry, space, structure, form, philosophy, history and more in five unique and beautifully choreographed dance pieces.
Nirmanika returns to The Capstone Theatre following its highly acclaimed performance in 2011.
“By the end of the performance, I was, without a doubt, completely astounded. Nirmanika was an incredibly engaging production that breathed new life into the centuries-old dance form” Pulse Magazine, UK
A unique collaborative production presented by Milapfest and Apsaras Arts (Singapore)
