Dancing with Meera

“The dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music, and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable. Dancing is poetry with arms and legs” as was beautifully articulated by Charles Baudelaire in the mid 1800s, and is a guiding philosophy for the huge stage production, Meera

The physical being gathers the strength, grace and flexibility ignites all the nine senses within, triggers all the sensory organs and then what is being expressed and told is what I term as “DANCE”. Its not merely a technique. Its the mostly beautiful, strong form of body movement that has the caliber of soothing and calming the mind and soul and connect them at a deeper level.  

The strength of togetherness and oneness, the power of creativity and passion, the intensity of clear vision and energy of persistent focused actions were very evidently felt, captured and enjoyed on 25th March 2018 at our grand event, the Meera Costume Rehearsal and Photoshoot for the entire cast and crew from MEERA. All supported and smoothly executed by a sea of generous, gracious art loving volunteers. It sounds unreal, but 100 performers, makeup, costumes, photos, videos, interviews all happened that morning with a big smile on each one’s face. But it was the dancers that I was consistently pulling my attention. Their beautiful techniques, stunning costumes, and a comrnadrery amongst the dancers that you very rarely see. That is what I call thepower of creativity and art.

Most of the things, known to Mankind teaches human minds and bodies limitations. Religion teaches to belief, spirituality teaches liberation, education teaches subject and technique, society teaches culture, manners, obedience. Relationships teach responsibilities. But dance teaches you how to celebrate all of this. It teaches you how to enjoy life. It gives you wings, strength, courage, freedom, dreams, ecstasy, happiness all at ones yet keep you on earth. Makes you person who can see the world with much empathetic eye. Makes you a person who hears more from within then from the outside world. It takes all the worldly cages and shields off and lets the soul with breathe freely. every expression, be it sad, happy, anger. anxiety- all are equally celebrated through dance.

Dance is a movement , a free, strong, vibrant expression of soul, emotions, expressions, ideas where no religion, no society, no colour, no region can create boundaries. Unfortunately. the modern world has made boundaries around ” Arts” . We have created little boxes of origin, cast, colour, ethnicity and have limited the freedom of creativity and creation. Wild Dreamer Productions, aims to wipe out all these imaginary boundaries, set Art free and wild, which is its only true self, and sing and narrate the endless saga of love, passion, courage and togetherness. 

“Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.”

~ Khalil Gibran
