On the hanging steps of an Indo-European dancer
19H45 - Chapiteau

Based on Dravidian cultural legacy (South India), Lyakam traces innovatively the route of a young Indo-European woman. This contemporary creation accompanies the steps of Jessie Veeratherapillay, a disciple of classical Indian dance of Tamil ancestors: Bharata Natyam. She performs this traditional form with contemporary colors on musical compositions with Indian
flavours, jazzy atmospheres and even flamenco reminiscences. Aerial movement of choreographer invites in its wake an electric sitar, a cajòn, a soprano saxophone and vocal harmonies for a bewitching show on ancient Indian ragas.
