Baluji Shrivastav – Antardrishti – Inner Vision

What is worse than having no sight? Having no vision. Indian maestro Baluji Shrivastav presents Antardrishti – InnerVision, a production inspired by the Bhagavad Gita. The performance will explore the concept of inner vision, and the complex interplay between light and darkness, examining what is sight and sightlessness. 

Outstanding blind musicians and dancers from throughout India will collaborate with Inner Vision Orchestra, Britain’s only blind orchestra comprising international musicians, and innovative digital artists Addictive TV, who create music you can see. Regional folk and classical vocal and instrumental music will follow a strong narrative theme, with sensitive and dramatic lighting design. Addictive TV will record, sample and add footage of several of the artists into the composition, creating a musical canvas that allows live musicians to interact with sampled recordings of themselves and the other musicians on-screen.
