I föreställningen Bindu Sagar möts de två dansarna liksom deras respektive indiska klassiska dansformer Odissi och Bharatanatyam. Utgångspunkten är spoken word och poesi i dialog med abhinaya, den indiska klassiska dansen i sin uttryckande form med handgester- mudra, mimik, skulpturala poser och laddade känslostämningar. Bindu Sagar är en hyllning både till havet och till Devi- universums moder och källan till alltings skapelse, i hennes många olika aspekter. Det är poesi i rörelse särskilt skapad för Musikvalvets intima rum till tonerna av levande musik på sitar och tabla. 

If the whole manifestation is considered to be the waves, the Self, as pointed by the sages, would be the ocean, Sagar.

If the whole manifestation is the never ending expanding universe with its endless cycles of creation, preservation and destruction, the triangle of life, the dot, in the middle, is not subject to change and doesn't belong to time. It is the Bindu, the nature of who we are from where all creation comes from.

Bindu Sagar is a void, yet the source of all energy, in the midst of the constantly flowing waves. It is what we are and from where all movements emerge and disappear.

From a single hand gesture, a mudra, all the emotions can be expressed, narration intertwining with abstraction. When the esthetic joy arises, the stage and its participants are left in Bindu Sagar, a place of rest.
