Project Arts Centre presents
By Balbir Singh Dance Company (UK)
DECREASING INFINITY (2010)
DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND AN EXTRA PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN ADDED AT 8PM ON 22 MAY.
DECREASING INFINITY, a duet for two men created by emerging choreographer Balbir Singh, brings together Kathak (a north Indian classical dance style) and contemporary dance.Starting in their purest forms, seen through abstract mirrors, the two styles of dance are attracted to each other, until they collide, at which point neither style of dance exists; rather, something new is formed.
Clear, sharp and intensely rhythmic, the dance is accompanied by a tabla player and a human beatboxer, who improvise a driving and edgy live sound score. The performance will be preceded by a short film about Singh’s process of making Decreasing Infinity.
Balbir Singh trained in contemporary dance and Kathak dance before establishing his own company. Always working with original live music, Singh’s work challenges dancers to explore their musicality and physicality equally. He has recently been commissioned to create a work with synchronised swimmers as part of the Cultural Olympiad for London 2012.
