Don Quixote
– A 15 member music-dance-theatre production of Sahrdaya Foundation, Chennai

A 21st-Century stage adaptation of 17th century Spanish novel, directed and choreographed by Sheejith Krishna, Sahrdaya Foundation’s Don Quixote combines multiple art forms — poetry, music, dance, and theatre — to unfold a timeless tale with universal relevance. This production rooted in Bharatanatyam and Carnatic music, brings together two passionate and soulful cultures.

“Sheejith Krishna is an expert Bharatanatyam dancer-choreographer who is known to push the envelope with his cutting-edge group choreographies and contemporary themes in Bharatanatyam … The music with singers Jyothishmathi Sheejith, Akhila Ramnarayan … was of a high order.” — The Hindu, January 24, 2014

“Animated dialogue, eye-catching imagery…Composed by Sheejith Krishna and presented by the Sahrdaya Foundation, the production was distinctive for its layered nuances.” — The Hindu, March 21, 2013
