In the beginning, there is only white. When looked at through the prism of life, white separates into the rainbow of colours that give name to our emotions and bonds. Beginning with undulating movements, Sanjukta seeks that white, that blank canvas which we all began with. “ I am searching and seeking the white, the light that connects us with the divine” says Sanjukta Sinha . Anchored by dramatic swirls that represent both time and life the dance is an ode to the seeker.

If you removed all that you’ve been taught, all that you’ve learnt and all that you’ve experienced, you’re left with a palette of instinctual and impulsive emotions, floating in a black, ripple-less pool. Some call it the sub-conscious, some, the very core of who we are. Sanjukta taps this hidden sanctuary with sharp & taut movements that represent the fear and fervour that drive our relationships. A simultaneous dialogue between the body and the music, the dance is fraught with our dark side. “ This dance is a condensation of one single question-beyond the boundaries, who am I ?” Says Sanjukta Sinha

An excursion into the parlays between love and longing, the dance recreates this most intimate of emotions, with a majestic, flamboyant, familiarity. Performed in pure classical Kathak ,with inflections of contemporary expressions, Sanjukta threads emotions with virtuosity. “I am expanding the canvas of the stage to mirror the expansion of the inner self” says Sanjukta Sinha. Affirmative and resplendent, the movements reflect surging emotions and the thrill of the journey
