GULABISTAN: The City of Roses
- This show is part of Stockholm Fringe Festival (#STOFFX) -
Ett poetiskt undersökande kring Rosen som kult och kulturväxt, som inspiration för sagor och myter och färger...
The colour and the flower – Rose is in many languages more or less the same and both of them are full of symbolism. In this piece have we used myths, stories and poetry connected to the rose and its life span for inspiration. The War of roses, Venus flower, Healing flower, Drowning in roses... The movements are influenced by the Indian dance tradition kathak, authentic movements, and expressive dance. The piece is both choreographed and score-based. The piece started off in Moghul India, inspired by Sufi poetry and beauty as worship. But during the rehearsals did the piece take off and left the Indian subcontinent towards a universal Rosegarden found within each persons heart and soul.
There is no story, no explanation. Only an abundance of pink, red and purple and other shades.
