In God's Country (2015)

Bharathanatyam dancers in several cities across the world will be performing “In God’s Country”, a curtain raiser choreographed and directed by Savitha Sastry. This presentation is a poignant and beautiful tale that offers a disarmingly simple insight into the complexities of life and living. With the charm of a fairy tale and the depth of ecumenical philosophy, 'In God's Country' is an experience for all ages. This curtain raiser will be the opening act for Savitha's solo dance theatre performance.

The artistic team behind Sai Shree Arts productions have created this unique opportunity for advanced Bharathanatyam dancers to study with Savitha Sastry, a pioneer in dance theatre. Participants will be trained by Savitha in local workshops in each city after a selection process. Only experienced performers are called to apply by sending an email to: Dancers in India from the following cities may apply to perform locally: Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Chennai.

'In God's Country' is based on an original story written by AK Srikanth and adapted to stage by Savitha Sastry. The presentation which debuted in USA on May 30, 2015 goes on to play in all major auditoriums across India in late 2015/early 2016.
