The fabulous amalgamation of Astad Deboo’s dance and Yukio Tsuji’s music, Eternal Embrace is inspired by the poem Maati, written by Sufi poet Hazrat Bulleh Shah. Embodying the poem’s central themes, the piece explores the tensions between annihilation and infinity, the ephemeral and the material worlds.
Astad Deboo’s name is synonymous with Contemporary Indian Dance. He pioneered a unique style of Indian Dance in the late 1970’s, during a time when innovation was not welcome in this traditional scene. Diverse influences have given Astad Deboo a rich vocabulary as a successful soloists. It has also given him the resources to engage in creative collaborations with musicians, puppeteers, theatre directors, visual artists and dancers – on a national and international scale.
Deboo’s significant legacy offers innovative models for younger Indian artists whom he exhorts with characteristic clarity: “to be Contemporary Indian Dancers we must be Indian Contemporary, not simply imitate the west.” His dynamic career has lasted close to five decades with performances in more than seventy countries.
