Roger Sinha's film 'The Barber of Bangalore' finalist in short film festival
Attakkalari is committed to contemporary dance and inter-disciplinary performance work. It's an umbrella organization for dance and digital arts. 'The Barber of Bangalore' is part of a larger solo dance work entitled 'Zeros & Ones,' which was premiered at the Montreal Arts Intercultural Theater in Montreal in May of 2008.
‘The Barber of Bangalore' explores the harmony and dissonance created when East and West collide. Using irony and humour, two classical forms meet, western classical music and eastern classical dance (The use of expression called Abhinaya in Bharatanatyam). The result is odd, confusing, funny, ridiculous though sometimes quite lovely and harmonious!
