Synopsis

An Italian choregraph travels to the Indian tribal areas of West Bengal and Jharkhand, home of an exhausting male dance using enormous masks.

Like India, this spectacular art form is in mutation, opening to foreigners and female performers.

CHHAU NACH is a colorful journey and a reflexion at how traditional art can benefit from modernity.
