"The Dark Lord", is a dance theater experience that will take the viewers on a journey through the images of the many seekers of lord 'Krishna’ . Following the life and voice of Meera 'the poetess of love', the story attempts to parallel the struggles, madness, lament and ultimately surrender of these seekers. The performance is unique in that it is an experience. The barrier of space between the performer and viewer is broken.
Drawing from the Classical Indian dance vocabulary of Bharatanatyam, the experience pushes the boundaries of performance and theater creating a visual impact that doesn't contain itself to the currently prescribed norms of presentation. The performance pushes and attempts to break the barriers of space between performer and audience. Contemporary idioms of social interaction and expression are reflected in the stories.
The viewer who is often far removed spatially and contextually from the characters present in these stories becomes an experiencer in "The Dark Lord”.
