1st participation at FQD
Jayachandran Palazhy is an established choreographer from India and has collaborated with numerous choreographers throughout the world. He founded the Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, a dance biennial in Bangalore, for which he is Artistic Director. His creations are centered around a common theme: the sublimation of women. In this digital-arts and dance piece, 10 performers invite us on a metaphysical journey engendered by internal and external forces, leading to life changes that are both individual and collective. Bhinna Vinyasa mixes imaginary and reality to create an immersive experience where digital arts, Indian dance traditions, and contemporary dance intermix.
