First Light

2014

First Light is in an interplay between dance, music, light and space choreographed by Seeta Patel with original music composed by John Metcalfe.

This piece takes the aesthetics and dynamics of Bharatanatyam dance in a contemporary movement context and takes inspiration from the age-old concepts of good overcoming evil, light overcoming darkness, and the divine female energy of the Hindu goddess Durga in her nine incarnations.
