About Indian Dancers
This dance-drama production expands on the Buddhist notion of “life is suffering” – the “dukkha” which in our everyday life this equates not to hunger or death, but this pervasive sense of dissatisfaction or uneasiness in life. We have an unending need to desire things we don’t have and want to rid ourselves of things we have but dislike. No matter how much we have, we will still continue to purchase more. Even our families will tell us “Never settle – go and fulfil your dreams”. But, does that mean we are doomed to never feel satisfied? This dance drama addresses a very modern question of what it means to have satisfaction, and what it means to be ambitious, and how we need to balance the two. It is an emotion that is easily relatable for the audience in Australia. The dance production has 25 dancers of multicultural background.
