Dance as an Idiom :

Believing that the body is the greatest reservoir of movements, Devmudraa delves into it to discover a basic language of dance that can transgress race, colour or religion and reach out to the global youth enabling them to find integrity in their otherwise racy, urban lives.

There are a large plethora of movements and this vocabulary is modified and strengthened through the daily process of improvisation and exploration that characterizes the activity of the workshop. The movements are often agonized, sometimes geometric, again harmonious and circular at others. There is a lot of feeling, introspection and individuality in the execution of a movement. While there is the strength and sharpness of the martial arts, there is the depth and richness of yogic concentration.

The body is the singular and exclusive base for all these movements thus lending a deep organic structure to the dance idiom. The dance idiom is particularly intricate in its thematic and technical content for it carefully deviates from all classical or traditional influences. The experimental form is perfectly suited to the contemporary urban thought process and sensibility. The fragmentation, doubt and mistrust that characterizes the modern age is well depictable through this language as is the need to find a meaningful and integrated medium of expression for all the frustration and stress that seeks creative outlets.
