In Two Minds
Musical dance performance about power, manipulation and docility.
“True power does not need arrogance, a long beard and a barking voice. True power strangles you with silk ribbons, charm and intelligence.” - Slavoj Žižek
In Two Minds is a collaboration between choreographer Kalpna Raghuraman, daf player Farid Sheek (Iran) and cellist Maya Fridman (Russia). Together with five dancers they research the principles of power. What are the strategies that leaders use to commit their followers to them and how do their followers get into their “master’s” good graces?
Dance on Mute
This performance is part of an initiative called 'Dance on Mute' by Kalpanarts. The initiative aims for better accesibility to performances for people that deaf or with impaired hearing. After the performance there will be a short aftertalk with Kalpana and a sign language interpreter.
