STILLING by Padmini Chettur | In Residence
Co-produced by G5A forum and BNP Paribas
In association with Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai

There is a particular stillness produced at the meeting of two counter rotational movements – those which draw arcs around the body’s vertical axis. It is a stillness that contains both beginning and end. Producing a circular time. A stillness of imperceptible oscillation, a place where contradiction is contained rather than dissolved. STILLING is an attempt to create a series of pathways, organizing and re-organizing duality in search of their edge. 10 dancers begin with short studies – as though proposing not only the alphabet, but the choreographic rules as well. They continue to build upon this foundation with almost algebraic precision, producing a complex and dense vocabulary of contradictions. As the performers navigate the material, they are forced to be disjointed and inter-connected at the same time, inviting us to almost stop remaining witness to an unfolding spectacle, rather to be drawn into the interiority of the counter – a place of disquiet – STILLING.
