Sapphire Creations is Eastern India’s only experimental dance company striving to develop an organic, radical, dynamic, and alternative idiom of movement.

Some countries visited are Malaysia, Spain, Israel, Czech Republic, UK, Singapore, Australia, Austria, Germany, Thailand, Italy, Bangladesh, Canada, Kazakhstan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Poland, USA and India.
This dance drama piece अतिथि देवो भव starts with the chanting of the verse mentioned in the Taittiriya Upanishad along with the dramatic welcome sequence framed as a ritualistic ceremony. Then it takes audience to a journey through the enriching culture of Bharat. A collage of dances, music, percussions, instruments, visuals, costumes from East, West, South, and North of India would be presented. The piece would end with the spirit of the country coming alive as the Mother Goddess, Mother India welcoming all to her fold.
BHAva-RAsa-Tala (Sound of the Nation)
सुर और साज का संगम
JAN 30 8:30PM EST – Re-run Completed. Thank You!
BANDISH FUSION is an experience of soul-stirring effect of sheer melodic beauty fused with incredible rhythms taking one to a whole new level of musical raptures. This band kicked off its journey way back in 1985 being one of the very first bands of its kind in India and is now surely regarded as one of the longest existing front ranking bands of the country.
In this show you will enjoy a fusion music with an unprecedented blending of genres combined with complex rhythms in unusual time signatures with a thoughtful blend of improvisational concept that was rooted in jazz as well as Indian music and harmonic influence from European classical music.
