Future Memory or the Lilavati project (2013-2014)

“In this project, I try to understand what it means to inherit a dance. What is my mission and how can I bring something new to a solo that was created many years ago? Through the husband of the Indian dancer Lilavati, professor Bengt Häger, I inherited Dixit Dominus, a solo made by Kurt Jooss specially for Lilavati. Today I am returning to the material, activating the archive, and trying to understand the role of the dancer Lilavati who herself spent time trying to merge her traditional Indian dance background with western modern dance.”
