Dancer Shobana is all set to showcase her latest production. Titled ‘Samadhina’ or Trance, the music-dance extravaganza will be mounted on April 22, 7 p.m., at The Music Academy Madras, TTK Road.

‘Samadhina’ is a quest to present Bharatanatyam in an eclectic and spiritual form. Each piece is strewn together on the traditional structure but with music ranging from Sufi, film and khayal to compositions of Bach and Vivaldi. It will recreate the mystic trance brought about by the Sufi poets as well as saint poets Patanjali and Jayadeva, who transcend man-made religious and social barriers with their imagery.

B Force, a NGO, presents ‘Samadhina’ in aid of Cancer Care of Policemen families, an initiative by the daughters of K. Mohandas, IPS.

Tickets are available at Chamiers, Alwarpet, Nuts and Spices (T.Nagar, Velachery & Anna Nagar), Fruit Shop (Adayar and Nungambakkam) and on www.bookmyshow.com. Donor passes are priced at Rs. 2000, Rs. 1000 & Rs. 500. Also available at the venue on April 20 and 21. Contact 97907 84585 for more information.
