Dance drama in Indian Sign Language captures the imagination of Pune audiences
March 6, 2018
A dance drama show called I story, Mi Gosht, Mai Kahani was presented through Kathak at a performance in Pune.
What made this performance by the dance troupe Sutradhar unique, was that the dance drama was accessible to everyone - the deaf and hard of hearing, as well as the hearing audience.
There were two sign language interpreters who did a live Indian Sign Language interpretation of the dance drama. This led to an overwhelming response from everyone in the audience.
The emotions were beautifully portrayed by the dancers. The performance started off with the artistes doing Kathak on how a story is formed. It also portrayed the emotions a writer experiences in the process of creating a story.
The dancers also showcased the way a story can take various forms of narration, poetry, dance and so on.
