“The Dark Lord” is a dance theater experience by Raadha Kalpa Dance Academy that takes the viewers on a journey through the images of the many seekers of Lord Krishna. The story follows the life and voice of Meera, the poetess of love. It attempts to parallel the struggles, courage, madness, lament and ultimately the surrender of these seekers. More details are available in this brochure and trailer can be seen here.
Drawing from Classical Indian dance vocabulary of Bharatanatyam, the experience pushes the boundaries of performance and theater creating a visual impact that doesn’t contain to the currently prescribed norms of representation. The barrier of space between the performer and the viewer is broken, creating a unique experience for every individual.
The Dark Lord is the first of it’s kind in the Indian vocabulary of dance theater. A truly special experience that celebrates some of the most retold stories of India.
