If news is to be believed, Madhuri Dixit Nene will be playing a lead in a theatrical production which will be performed at the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar, titled ‘The Earth Song’.
Including a wide range of dances including contemporary, classical, jazz, ballet, Afro as well as Sattriya, Odissi, Mohiniattam, Kathak, the production is written by Nupur Mahajan. According to Mid-Day, the production will reflect the idea of uniting the world, told by Mother Earth who Dixit will be playing.
Talking to the media, Mahajan expressed, “For a writer who wants to break the mould, the people of Odisha present the perfect audience. Their inclusive approach together with the cultural and aesthetic edge is the perfect reason to bypass formulaic ceremonies and create something original and intellectual.”
“Also sport is where all divides converge around a shared passion and it is the perfect canvas to engage the world in the message of a united world. And talking of oneness, where else can Mother Earth rise but India, a land which symbolises oneness in diversity,” she went on to say.
The production has been fully choreographed by Shiamak Davar, who has had many experiences with Dixit Nene stated, “Madhuri and I have always created magic together and this, together with Nupur Mahajan’s writing and Ranjit Barot’s music makes me believe that together we will create a milestone show.”
