‘Earth Song’ to spice up HWC fest

Monday, 26 November 2018 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Lighting up the opening ceremony of the Hockey World Cup on November 27 will be The Earth Song, which in one of its acts will present a take on Eastern culture meeting the Western.

The concept and premise of the act rests on the two halves that have polarised the world. Created by Nupur Mahajan, the Earth Song will address the divide through this act.

This act is choreographed by Aruna Mohanty for the eastern elements and Shiamak Davar will lead the western elements. Mahajan has told of the East and West confluence by way of the Saptmatrika or the seven mother goddesses depicting the East and the theory of ‘seven daughters of Eve’ depicting the West.

Each of the Saptmatrika will be depicted by a classical Indian dance form. The seven daughters of Eve will similarly be depicted by a western dance form. The confluence of both will focus on meeting of the established divine- East and West, reiterating the message of oneness.

The act will be a perfect exhibition of fusion performances. They will range from the Indian classical versions of Odishi, Mohiniattam, Bharatnatyam, Sattriya, Kathak, Kuchipudialong to western versions of ballet, Samba, Jazz, Afro, Balinese, Capioera and Contemporary.

The act will aim to connect the commonalities of the two cultures while displaying a full array of dance performance.
