New classical Indian dance meets abstract sculpture in Erhebung, a collaboration between choreographer Mayuri Boonham and the sculptor Jeff Lowe. Boonham’s increasing abstraction of the dancers’ figures creates an expressive boundary with Lowe’s striking sculpture – a place where form and abstraction merge. The dance is performed within a sculptural landscape that integrates choreography in its design. A key inspiration for the work is Burnt Norton, a poem from T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. The title, Erhebung, is a German word mentioned in the poem, meaning rising or elevation.
