Revanta Sarabhai/ Korzo productions

Revanta Sarabhai is a dancer, choreographer, multimedia designer and independent filmmaker. He performed his first classical Indian dance solo aged 8 and, by the age of 14, he was designing his first choreographies. It is no wonder when you consider that he is the son of Mallika Sarabhai, one of the first Bharata Natyam and Kuchipudi dancers to be known in Europe. She played Druapadi in Peter Brook’s famous “Mahabharata” and has been delighting audiences around the world with her dancing for decades. Revanta may have received the best training from childhood but he has been able to develop his talent and has gone on to learn several traditional dances, classical and contemporary dancing, as well as Indian ancestral martial arts. He now includes all these disciplines in his performances which have taken him to Asia, Europe and the United States. For some time now he has been living between London, his place of residence, and The Hague, where he is a resident choreographer at Korzo Theater.

His show LDR (Long Distance Relationship) explores the complexities and misunderstandings arising from long distance relationships. Integrating dance, theatre, texts, poetry, video and music, he questions the fundamental nature of distance: how can we find togetherness when living separately and on the move? An affective soundscape layers the interplay of text and movement with a multitude of ‘voices’ that speak of waiting, desire and the silence in between separation. A beautiful promenade in between laughter and sadness, past and present, dance and poetry. Revanta Sarabhai dances with ease and lightness, with a perfect command of his body and his game. He enraptures the audience with a subtle grace that makes the performance irresistible.
