The Fires of Varanasi is a large-scale, multidisciplinary dance work in which the choreographers (Ranee, Aparna & Ashwini Ramaswamy - mother and daughter) explore the liminal spaces in the birth-death-re-birth continuum to understand human experiences of migration - physical, cultural, emotional. French light/set designer/art director Willy Cessa has created a multi-sensory experience that weaves together choreography, nature, and ritual. New Delhi-based visual artist Manav Gupta has designed a large-scale stage installation, transforming thousands of Indian earthen vessels into an homage to the swirling waters of the Ganges.
