About The Event

The North-east is a heartbreaking amalgam of natural beauty and militant aggression, of lightning moves and glacial response, of the turbulence of politics and the calm pace of tradition, flowing one below the other like twin

River Runs Deep begins on a gentle note, reflective of ordinary life as it is lived in the North East, with a gradual build-up to the sense of insecurity and even fear against which many people in the region actually conduct their existence.

The Pungcholam and Dholcholam drummers from Shree Shree Govindji Nat Sankirtan in Imphal, headed by Guru Seityaban Singh; build up the crescendo in a gradual and powerful form, with the drums coming into play the tempo now frantic, in stark counterpoint to a prolonged session of Like form and content, neither can be separated.

Astad Deboo is an Indian contemporary dancer and choreographer, who employs his training in Indian classical dance forms of Kathak as well as Kathakali to create a dance form that is unique to him, and has become a pioneer of modern dance in India.

Throughout his long and illustrious career, he has worked with various prominent performers such as Pina Bausch, Alison Becker Chase and Pink Floyd, and performed in many parts of the world.

He has been awarded the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1996 and Padma Shri in 2007, awarded by the Government of India.
