Parijat Desai Dance Company Songs to Live For - Dance

Songs To Live For explores the profound romantic and spiritual longing evoked by Hindustani vocal music—love songs called thumri and khayal, in particular. Dancers move solo, in pairs and as an ensemble, responding to the music's spacious vocals, rhythmic punctuations and nuances of poetry. Parijat Desai's choreography blends fluid movements from postmodern dance with gesture/expression from Indian classical dance. This dance theater work is enhanced by visuals referencing India's Mughal courts, where this music was originally fostered.
