Indian dance company to return to Tel Aviv E-mail

In conjunction with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations and the Embassy of India in Israel, the Navdhara India Dance Theatre (NIDT) will return for its third visit to the Suzanne Dellal Centre in Tel Aviv to perform Agni at the Dellal Hall on 23-24 July.

Agni was commissioned by the Suzanne Dellal Center and premièred on 22 December 2016 in Mumbai, India. The audience that night gave the piece a standing ovation, and it has since been performed in many cities around the world.

In Hindi, the word means fire, a symbol of destruction and purification, beginnings and endings. It gives light yet destroys to the point of darkness. As passions arise, personal and political walls are destroyed and new ones are built. In this contemporary Indian dance-theatre piece, the dancers explore the concept of Agni, the body and death in its various manifestations. Agni is a journey of fire that must be experienced more than seen; felt more than understood.
