ISSHH(K) A Choreographic-Cinematic Voyage
Nicole Seiler from Switzerland presents ISSHH(K) A Choreographic-Cinematic Voyage at Attakkalari India Biennial 2017
ISSHH(K) is a choreographic research questioning the idea of the group, and the requirements to create a “common” body. It is based on Devdas, a novel by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, and different film adaptations of the novel. Seiler, the choreographer of this piece, has researched on multimedia and its relationship with dance, video, and choreographic installations. Her interest in multimedia is reflected in this piece, a link between sound and image; cinema and stage-are explored in depth.
Centre-Stage is the main attraction of the 10-day dance festival, presenting cutting-edge contemporary dance and digital performances from countries across the world like the Netherlands, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, Korea, Poland, South Africa, Finland, and India.
Cie Nicole Seiler has toured in India in 2011 with Ningyo and in 2014 with K Two. As Devadas has been ingrained in the cultural memory of India, choreographic and cinematic voyage based on Devdas is a must watch to imagine a choreographic version of the much familiar image of the tragic lover.
