ABHIPSAA — a seeking
WORLD PREMIERE: FRI, DECEMBER 10 – SATURDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2021
Hailed by The New Yorker as “a performer of exquisite grace and technique,” Bijayini Satpathy spent 25 years as Principal Dancer with India’s fabled Nrityagram Dance Ensemble before striking out on her own to create ABHIPSAA — a seeking, co-commissioned by Duke Performances and New York’s Baryshnikov Arts Center. In this new solo work, which will have its world premiere in Duke’s von der Heyden Studio Theater on Friday, December 10 and Saturday December 11, 2021, Satpathy firmly establishes her own choreographic voice while advancing the vocabulary of Odissi dance, all set to a new musical score.
