Dance Performance – Black Pulp by XIN
Alliance Française of Hyderabad in association with Andhra Pradesh Tourism and Trident Hyderabad
Black Pulp combines solos and duos in an instinctive, abstract but meaningful dance, that is sensual, exciting, and sometimes hypnotic. No narration is needed, the piece takes inspiration from Love relationships. How beautiful Love is, and how painful It can be. How Love can transcend you, or destroy you. How Love can lead you to your darkest side. How deep you can fail and fall. And from this point, how can you stand up…
