The Blind Age is a choreographic rendition of Andha Yug*, one of modern India’s most acclaimed verse plays. Set on the last day of the apocalyptic Kurukshetra war when vultures have emerged as the ultimate victors over both good and evil, this dance theatre work is a parable of our times, mirroring the catastrophic conflicts of the contemporary world that keeps nations, religions and cultures at siege.

Andha Yug ( अँधा युग ), written in Hindi by Dharamvir Bharati and translated in English by Alok Bhalla, was a response to the violent partition of India in 1947.

The Bling Age was commissioned by The Esplanade Kalaa Utsavam 2014.
