Ardhanarishvara

The premiere of Nick Gray’s beautifully evocative, multi textured new composition is performed by a quintet of performers. The multiple prizewinning Piatti Quartet is joined by the enigmatic dancer Kali Chandrasegaram in a magical portrait of the male female hindu deity Ardhanarishvara. Crystallising out of mythological mists, the eternity of a universal cosmic dance manifests in subtle nuanced form.

Interlaced with a range of inspirational contrasts drawn from east and west, the music beguiles and captivates the listener as it caresses the alluring articulation of the dancer.
