Sakuntalas Ring

Participatory dance piece
BMW GLOBAL Partner

Based on the digital comic Sakuntala's Ring, published by the Bayerisches Staatsballett (www.in-toon.com), the theatre has developed a participatory dance piece on the legend of the figure of Sakuntala. Her story is created by the Indian-born dancer Anoosha Shastry using elements of classical Indian dance. Amateur performers develop new choreographic elements to accompany the scenes danced by Anoosha Shastry and add their own ideas to the original. The production will be shown at the UniCredit Septemberfest in autumn 2024 and later as a mobile production in the greater Munich area. The sound design was created by Renu Hossain (RENU), a London-born, Berlin-based interdisciplinary artist of Bengali origin. For her musical arrangement, she worked with an original recording of La Bayadère, which was recorded in 2023 with the Bavarian State Orchestra under the direction of Michael Schmidtsdorff.
