Celebrated choreographer, Shiamak Davar delivers everything he promises to with his venture SELCOUTH- a rare, unusual, marvellous and wonderful contemporary dance show organized at NCPA Mumbai on 3rd November.
Best known for modernizing India’s dance, Shiamak Davar enthralled performing arts ‘enthusiasts’ . Ranveer Singh, Vikram Phadnis, VJ Andy, VJ Kamal Sidhu , Dhvani Bhanushali, Shakti Mohan, Siddharth Roy Kapur, industrialist Mr. Anand Mahindra and other famous personalities like Smita Thackeray, USA Consul General Mr. David Ranz were mesmerized with his contemporary dance show Selcouth.
A blend of contemporary and modern dance with ballet as the base, Selcouth aimed at depicting what life is all about. With the
power of dance, illustrating everything ranging from dance, drama, love and humour. Shiamak beautifully managed to take the audience through a terrifying journey to things which people do not see, through his contemporary dance, beautifully presented by his energetic dance team.
Commenting on this, star performer Ranveer Singh said, “Selcouth is an extra ordinary performance and I am honoured to share stage with Shiamak and his Company. The performance was a blend of varied emotions and I was at the tip of my seat to witness an illustrative perspective of what life is all about. This performance was an absolute visual treat. This performance cannot be compared to any other performance, it is pure art and dance.”
“Dance for me is not passion, not profession, but a marvelous splendor of spark that sets you apart from the ordinary. When you hear your soul, your body should create movement that only you can feel, that is exactly what Selcouth is all about…Where your mind shares thoughts that only you can understand. I am grateful for the entertainment industry to always encourage Selcouth, so blessed to have my dance team who surrender themselves to Dance” says Shaimak Davar.
“We completed over 30 shows of Selcouth and I was overwhelmed at the response from the audience. This movement is very different from what people generally see; this is pure dance that moves your spiritual mind. I’m glad we could bring the show back. Selcouth is very close to my heart and creatively something that I look forward to every time we do it” adds Shaimak Davar.
Exploring varied emotions, the audience was at the tip of their seats, curious for surprises, unexpected visual treats and technique par excellence. Shiamak has certainly opened the battlefield and set a standard that seems impossible to match.
