Public Energy is pleased to welcome Deepti Gupta back to Peterborough for the premiere of her newest work, Snowangels; the longstanding relationship between Gupta and Public Energy has included a number of new works, most notably her iconoclastic work, Rubies, in 2003. Snowangels explores the newcomer encounter with snow, and the ongoing experience every Canadian has with this mysterious, startling phenomenon of nature.
Featuring four dancers, the choreography explores rhythm, expression and narrative, based in the Kathak dance form. Snowangels combines elements of Canadian music with the rhythms of Indian classical music.
Deepti Gupta is a noted scholar, teacher and choreographer both in Canada and in India, whose choreography is at the cutting edge of contemporary South Asian dance.
