In the heart of the vibrant Klang Valley, a dance revolution is brewing, and it’s calling right out to you…

Kalpana Dance Theatre (KDT)  is about to unveil its 22nd work of opulence since its inception, as they present “The Call of the Flute,” an Odissi masterpiece set to mesmerise audiences on November 25, 2023, at the Shantanand Auditorium within the Temple of Fine Arts, Brickfields.

Imagine a world where ancient traditions meet youthful fervour…

Picture Krishna: The celestial herder, serenading the cosmos with his bamboo flute, while over 75 dancers, aged between four to 40, grace the stage with a synergy that interconnects reality with the divine.

At the helm of this project are Leena Mohanty, a pioneering figure in the realm of dance, and Dr. Dheeraj Kumar Mohapatra, a prodigious musician whose melodies are known to intricately entwine a range of emotions. Together, their partnership has given rise to a production that goes beyond conventional limits, seamlessly incorporating elements of both tradition and modernity.

“The Call of the Flute” not only delves into the ancient tales of Krishna but also explores the universal desire for connection and transcendence…

These themes deeply resonate with the introspective nature of today’s youth. Under the visionary guidance of Shangita Namasivayam, Artistic Director of KDT, this production aims to feed young minds hungry for depth and meaning.

It’s not just a show; it’s a bridge between generations, a celebration of art’s ability to unify, inspire, and transform, while serving as a tribute to the power of cultural heritage in a world that often feels too fast-paced to pause and take in the beauty of tradition.
