Ranan will be performing 'Crossings' at the 11th Bharat Rang Mahutsav (http://www.nsdtheatrefest.com/ ) organised by the National School of Drama on Saturday 17 Jan 6pm at Bahumukh Theatre, NSD campus, Bhagwan Dass Road, New Delhi.
Crossings weaves together the dance forms of Kathak, Bharatnatyam and Manipuri alongside text-based drama to explore the aspects of Lady Macbeth.
Four performers represent facets of Lady Macbeth in constant conflict to create a fluid performance woven from four strands – a verbal text constructed from the dialogue of the original play, a movement text drawing from the dance forms, a musical text created in response to both words and movement, and a symbolic text crafted from the imagery in Macbeth and the symbolism which imbues Indian classical dance.
This project began as an experiment in bringing together the languages of classical dance and text-based drama in January 2004 supported by a Fellowship grant from the Department of Culture, Government of India and has gone through several versions. Crossings has opened an International Shakespeare Festival in Kerala, inaugurated and won four major awards at the Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards in Delhi (2006: Best Director, Best Supporting Actress, Best Music, Best Costume Design), formed the topic of discussions and writings at academic seminars and journals from Calcutta to Brisbane and been repeatedly held up as a yardstick for local interpretations of Shakespeare by leading Calcutta dailies. We recently returned from a show at the Ninasam Theatre Institute near Bangalore in October 2008.
