'Vistar' offers an experience of the traditional form of Odissi with a contemporary sensibility. It explores the possibilities that come to life when weaving the major strands of classical music, poetry and rhythm with modern stagecraft, lighting and multimedia.
This piece is a rich tapestry woven out of four pieces. While one highlights movement patterns to explore spatial possibilities, the others explore the poetics of rasanubhuti, illuminate aural designs arisen from movement, and focus on the architectonics unique to each musical genre.
‘Vistar’ is presented in close collaboration with lighting designer and visual artist Gyandev Singh such that the physical movements that are constitutive of the performance are compounded by lighting and projection which dextrously visualise abstract concepts of musical structure and spatial geometry, yielding a layered experience for the audience.
