Crimson Coast Dance

Experience Bhairava, a stunning dance film choreographed and performed by classical Indian dance virtuoso, Shantala Shivalingappa. Shot around the ancient village of Hampi, India—Bhairava evokes facets of Shiva, the Lord of Dance, as both the destroyer of evil and the guardian of time. Crimson Coast Dance Society is proud to present this work as part of the 22nd Annual InFrinGinG Dance Festival.

Creative Response PDF

Bhairava was filmed around the ancient village of Hampi, in central Karnataka, India. The site is famous, not only for its spiritual and historical significance, but also for its epic landscape punctuated by massive boulders and the snaking Tungabhadra River. 

In this creative response activity, we invite you to reimagine where Shantala dances. The sky and background have been removed, and only her silhouette remains in the foreground. Where else might she perform? Download the template here.
