The performances by Bharat Sharma, Surjeet Singh, Rajsree and Subro Gosh have made aclear impact to the audience. These solo performances are individual with different ideas conceived by the performers with a perceptible approach towards choreography.
The interactive dance of Mr Santosh Nair, with the digital media has shown the developments in the Indian dance performances. The design of the choreography is much more attractive. The inner image of the performer was screened on 30 by 40 screen on the cyclorama and the dancer was made a good interaction while performing on the stage. He also made 7 boxes on stage and interacted seven images on the screen with different movement and Mudras. I think as 7 is the most important number for Indians, The choreographer might used 7 boxes on the stage.
Neha Gupta and Himani Sharma the principle dancers of Bhoomika devised a meaningful performances from their own experiences. These performances are vibrant and vital in the festival. The moment based performances by Subhasish and Sangeeta Sharma had given an understand of classical adaptations of Indian dances.
The talkative dancer , a performance by Sumith Nagdev, definitely made the audience laugh. The performance comibines so many dance forms with the poem and script written by the performer. Martha Graham dance not the MARATHA GARAM dance was an interesting peace in his performance.
Karan's performance of ballet dance is a new kind of performance in the festival. It was attractive with out making an impact on the audience.
Being Stage Manager and the Lighting Assistance for the whole festival of dance had given me a different kind of experience to train Nirmal, Ankit and Neeraj. The festival went very smooth without much difficulties as its well planned in advance and well coordinated with all. The comparing of Sushmitha Gosh and project ideas by Tripura Kashyap is another advantage for the festival to be succeed. In and all Goutham's co ordination and lights design added a different flavour to the whole festival.
