Those who think sorrow is sweet have evidently not seen enough happiness. Here, then, is a paradox - a ballet celebrating sorrow, but, clearly, intending to exhilarate.

The Park group of hotels is organising the 4th edition of its annual cultural festival called The Park's New Festival, from 3rd to 26th September at Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Kolkata.

In Hyderabad, the festival will be held from 17th to to 19th September. The 3-day festival will have a ballet by Preethi Athreya on 17th September, a comedy performance by Vidur Kapur on 18th September, and a Dastangoi performance on 19th September.

As part of the festival, Preethi Athreya will be presenting a solo ballet "Sweet Sorrow", on the inaugural day. Combining dance, text, film and music, Sweet Sorrow plays with the intersection of universal icons and loss and longing with the more obscure personal narratives of the same. In doing so, it tries to touch the crucial 'absurd' that is at the heart of all loss.

A Chennai-based contemporary dancer, Preethi Athreya trained in Bharatanatyam under the Dhananjayans. She holds a Post-Graduate Degree in Dance Studies (Laban Centre, London, 2001).

Preethi has been working with well-known choreographer Padmini Chettur in Chennai since 1999. Her first solo creation, Inhabit (January 2006), was conceived and developed on the idea of the body inhabited by the enormity of the present moment.

Entry is by invitations only. Please contact Simi Susan at 2345-6789 / 4499-0000 for further details.
