Pioneer of Indian Contemporary Dance, Padma Shri Astad Deboo, all set to perform his first solo in over 10 years in Bengaluru, at The Collection, UB City

The 60-minute solo, 'Eternal Embrace', in collaboration with renowned Japanese musician Yukio Tsuji will take place on 16 December 2016 at 7 pm.

Bangalore, India, December 11th, 2016 -- Padma Shri Astad Deboo, a pioneer in Contemporary Indian Dance, will perform his 60-minute solo, 'Eternal Embrace', at The Collection, UB City. The dance, composed in collaboration with Japanese musician Yukio Tsuji, will take place on 16 December 2016 at 7 pm. This is Astad's first solo performance after a decade in Bengaluru.

With a career spanning almost 50 years, Astad has performed in 70 countries, collaborated with world-famous legends such as Pink Floyd, and worked with the Government of India to celebrate the coronation of the King of Bhutan. For the last two decades, he has worked extensively with disabled artists, and opened the 25th Deaf Olympics Cultural Festival with his 'Deaf Group'.

'Eternal Embrace', choreographed and performed by Astad and composed by Yukio Tsuji, explores the tension between the ephemeral and material worlds. The piece was recently performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, where it received a standing ovation, with Astad being touted as "a dancing monk". He is excited about his performance in the city and is gearing up to enthrall his audience with this Sufi-inspired solo, in his signature style of evoking intense emotion.

Sharing his thoughts on his upcoming performance in Bengaluru, Shri Astad Deboo said, "It's a pleasure to present my latest creation along with my collaborator, Yukio Tsuji. I'm very excited about my performance in UB City."

"It gives me immense pleasure to present Mr. Deboo's solo performance in Bengaluru after so many years. He is an icon of Indian Contemporary Dance and has served as a mentor to numerous aspiring artistes, with his striking signature style of modern dance. I invite everyone to this soulful performance to experience a master artiste showcase his art", added Ms. Uzma Irfan - Director, Prestige Group.

Astad Deboo has choreographed for some of India's most prominent film directors, including Mani Ratnam and Vishal Bharadwaj as well as for legendry painter M.F. Husain. Internationally, he has performed for the Royal families of Thailand, Japan, and Sweden.
