“хочу” - I want [the dance film]

* хочу: in Russian it means “I want”. The idea was born out of a class in a school of contemporary dance in St. Petersburg, in a city of triumph for the classical ballet, where a dance school is open for all the people that intimate that seek to satisfy their creative internal “wants”.

A dançarina Kathak Nehalem Bhogaita (Miss India Worldwide 2013),  a coreógrafa Sonia Sabri o compositor Sarvar Sabri junto com Jason Elberts inspiraram-se no personagem mitológico Sita para o 18º London Asian Film Festival e criaram o videodança assinalando o Dia Internacional da Mulher.

O projeto foi idealizado pelo Festival LAFF e o apoio é do 18ª Asian Film Festival London e pelo Arts Council England e BFI de Londres.

The dancer Nehal Bhogaita (Miss India Worldwide 2013), Kathak choreographer Sonia Sabri and composer Sarvar Sabri create a contemporary dance on camera piece with Jason Elberts on the mythological character Sita for the 18th London Asian Film Festival marking International Women's Day. This digital art premiered at British Library on 6 March 2016 at the festival's Ram Lila story telling event led by Dr Seema Anand.

This new work brings a resonance of Sita's life that is often missed from recitals and narrations.

The project was visioned by LAFF festival director Dr Pushpinder Chowdhry and led by creative director Samir Bhamra. The 18th London Asian Film Festival was supported by Arts Council England and BFI London.
