Choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh seeks to create dance works which are Asian in technique, British in context and personal and contemporary in vision.

In [h]Interland Shobana was interested in the urban reality of Bangalore – the traffic, the roads, the rapid growth and modern buildings, and the technological expertise. A key part of the dance is the live webcast of one dancer - Chitra - dancing to a locked-off camera in Bangalore while the other dancers performed in Greenwich Dance Studios in London.

By having a ‘locked’, immovable camera, in effect removing the grammar of the camera - Shobana felt this would give a different way for the audience to relate to the dancer. All the choreography for Chitra took in the fact that it would be seen through a static camera, as through a window.

Video extract from '[h]Iinterland'

Terry Braun collaborated with Shobana in Bangalore, India to decide the choice of location, after which Terry directed the placing of the locked-off camera, the choice of lens and the production and delivery of the live webcast streamed from that camera in Bangalore to the live performance in London.

" an exemplary piece of multimedia (h)interland shone with intelligence and enchantment."
