Elysian Pursuits (2015)

Dance Film


For the fist time ever, Savitha Sastry brings on screen the genre defining dances from her productions that has "virtually constructed a renaissance" in Bharathanatyam (Times of India). Part 1 speaks on why she took on the road-less-travelled. Also features the unforgettable "Dance of Satan" amongst others from "YUDH" (2013).

Part 2 elaborates on how Savitha has reinvented herself as the dancing storyteller. Catch the "Dance of the Soul Caged" - the one that started it all, amongst others from 'Soul Cages' (2012) and an exciting preview of the "Dance of Love" from 'Chains' (2015).

Part 3 is an ode to the adoration and support that audiences have given Savitha. The visceral "Dance of Doubt" from 'The Prophet' (2014) is featured in this part along with the unforgettable "Life in the Dregs".
