MARA – The Mastermind

MARA is a mind-bending, high-octane dance, music and multimedia production that brings to life the diabolical, devious character, Mara from the Buddhist lore, in a visually entrancing exploration of the human mind and all its intricacies. Stunning synchrony of movement by classical Indian dancers and boldly innovative live music – a powerful, heady mix of Indian ragas, brass band jazz, modern funk and global rhythms – intersects with multimedia projections and experimental staging. This original production created by the dynamic brother-sister duo Aditya and Mythili Prakash blends poetry with dance choreographed by Mythili Prakash and performed by a select group of dancers from Apsaras Arts along with music composed and performed by the Aditya Prakash Ensemble.
