A tale of desire and expression…. Mugam was a secret language developed in the Sixteenth Century to express forbidden desires. It was a language for men. In this work accompanied b a passionate score a woman takes up the challenge, revealing the unexpected and playing with convention. Classical Indian and contemporary with playful intent and deadly accuracy.
