Antardrishti - Inner Vision

A music dance and audiovisual extravaganza for Unlimited
What is worse than having no sight? Having no vision. In 2017, BMF were awarded an R&D for an International Commission by Unlimited for their new project Antardristi  - InnerVision, a production inspired by the Bhagavad Gita. The performance will explore the concept of inner vision, and the complex interplay between light and darkness, examining what is sight and sightlessness. 

UPCOMING DATES :
07/09/2018 - Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, London, UK > Book here
08/09/2018 - Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich, UK > Book here.
13/09/2018 - British Council Theatre, Delhi, India
17/09/2018 - Royal Opera House, Mumbai, India > Book here

Led by multi-instrumentalist Baluji Shrivastav OBE, the international music dance and visual performance will feature Inner Vision Orchestra, Indian musicians Raju Maurya (tabla), Perumal Varudaraj (bansuri flute), Chiman Lal (violon), singer Sayani Palit, classical dancers from Arunima Kumar Dance Company, story-teller Giles Abbott and digital artists Addictive TV, who create music you can see. Regional folk and classical vocal and instrumental music will follow a strong narrative theme, with sensitive and dramatic lighting design. Addictive TV will record, sample and add footage of several of the artists into the composition, creating a musical canvas that allows live musicians to interact with sampled recordings of themselves and the other musicians on-screen.

The R&D took place in Goa, in association with the International Center Goa, and you can read a full page feature in The Goan newspaper here: http://englishnews.thegoan.net/story.php?id=37383
  
The idea behind the project originates from a 2016 trip part of the Re:Imagine India scheme, where a research team, led by Baluji, travelled to Delhi, Bangaluru, Chennai, Rajasthan, Kolkata, and Gujarat, to discover and collaborate with many enthusiastic and talented visually impaired musicians and dancers.

Commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Arts Council England and British Council.
