Rhythm: Samudra’s new production.

The Thiruvananthapuram-based-dance troupe Samudra has been invited to participate in The Festival dei Due Mondi (Festival of the Two Worlds), an annual summer music and opera festival held in June in Spoleto, Italy.

The troupe will premiere ‘Rhythm,’ their 55-minute production. ‘Rhythm,’ choreographed by Madhu Gopinath and Sajeev Vakkom, comprises five segments. This is the third time that the troupe has been invited to perform at the festival. In 2001, Samudra had captivated the audience with their production ‘The Sound of Silence’ and won the award for the best production. ‘Jalam’ was performed the next year at the same festival.

A 14-member team will perform in Italy.
