gdansk solo dance contest 2022
As the host for the contest is the EurAsia Partner Gdansk Festwal Tanca, every year Stefano Fardelli selects one of the EurAsia Dancers that will directly join the event along with the other selected participants coming from all over the world.
The EurAsia Artistic Director is glad to announce the name of the EurAsia Dancer chosen for this year’s edition of the contest and that therefore is travelling to Gdansk, in Poland: Tejaswini Loundo, originally from India, with her solo MŪL-SĀKHYA.
Tejaswini just completed her three year professional program at the EurAsia Partner DanceHaus Accademia Susanna Beltrami of Milan, Italy, which also supported her solo dance project.
The Contest took place from September 19th till the 23rd at Klub Żak, Gdańsk, Poland.
MŪL-SĀKHYA is a piece that talks about the beautiful relationship between ‘nayika’ (a classic Indian heroine) and her ‘nupura’ (ankle bells). The choreography unfolds as they are having a conversation; through their affection and separation emerges their spiritual relationship. The nupura are her faithful companions and it can be said that through dancing they become an extension of each other.
