Bhoomi - The Earth
This fall, we are presenting an event that explores the solutions to one of greatest challenges faced by humanity today - climate change - through the lens of Indian philosophical thought. Framed by the portrayal of the five natural elements - space, air, fire, water, and earth - the work depicts the evolution of humanitys connection to these fundamental aspects of the earths existence. It asks why and how have we gotten to this point and what might we do to slow this course we have laid for ourselves?
CFAA will be presenting Bhoomi - The Earth on Sunday, Sep 29th at the Broomfield Auditorium in Broomfield,CO. Bhoomi is conceived, choreographed and performed by, Kalanidhi, a Maryland based Dance Company using traditional Kuchipudi artform and colorful costumes and then marrying that with contemporary themes and narratives.
The work unfolds in front of paintings by award-winning artist Shanthi Chandrasekhar and lush designs from Dylan Uremovich. India-based music composer Praveen Rao provides a sweeping and innovative original score.
Bhoomi was commissioned in 2018 by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Local Dance Commissioning Project (LDCP). Kalanidhi Dance was one of only three dance companies from the Washington, D.C. region to receive the award in 2018. LDCP supports local dance artists by commissioning work and presenting it to a wide audience via the Millennium Stage. The project provides funds for each artist to create a new work and a venue to premiere it in, as well as rehearsal space, artistic mentorship, and technical assistance.
