Initium has toured over 5 cities and performed to an audience of some 12,000 people. Each performance of Initium is unique and sympathetically adapted to its surroundings.
Initium was a South Asian dance focused contemporary spectacle; conceived by Mira Kaushik and choreographed by Gauri Sharma Tripathi, in collaboration with Tony Charalambous.
With a significant cast of dancers, it juxtaposed the lyricism of kathak with the spirited dynamics of contemporary dance, circus and the folk theatre form, Yakshagana. Punctuated with pyrotechnics, this vivid and fresh piece explored the way dreams can change in an instant, combining elements that clash at first glance, but ultimately work together to create a new reality.
