STORIES WE TELL OURSELVES: Dance Theatre Performance by X Sense Contemporary Dance Course Bangalore Indiranagar
STORIES WE TELL OURSELVES is a dance theatre performance. It’s performed by the 9th batch of the X SENSE contemporary dance course Bangalore at FLUX.
The production is directed by the founder Sahiba Singh, with assistant direction by Shyam Hemrom and Trish Bramha U. The performance revolves around the idea of love and intimate relationships from the perspective of a child.
The stories interweave nuanced and complex feelings of grief, confusion, seeking closure, anger, compassion, self inquiry, introspection, regret, shame and guilt. They also speak of a lot of things left unspoken, misunderstood and probably understood over time, if at all.
It’s an immersive and intimate performance. We have limited seating. Therefore we are performing at Flux on March 31st, April 1st and April 2nd at 8 pm.
Update: Revival of The Performance in Its New Avatar As CLOWN’S LABYRINTH
We have re-scheduled this event to perform on 7th May 2023 once again. This time we are performing it in its new avatar titled CLOWN’S LABYRINTH.
About CLOWN’S LABYRINTH
CLOWN’S LABYRINTH is a dance theater production exploring complex feelings and emotions that surround us, in our closest, intimate relationships, keeping us stuck in a labyrinth of our desires!
The production will take you on a surreal journey of love in its fullness with its paradoxes and all its pains. From guilt to grief and from joy to acceptance.
Love is a powerful feeling and CLOWN’S LABYRINTH explores the narratives we make and make believe, in order to give ourselves the closure we seek. The production also explores things left unsaid and feelings of being unseen and unloved, all with deep vulnerability and courage.
The genre explored in CLOWNS’ LABYRINTH is dance theater and through these physical movements, visual narratives and theatrical dialogues and monologues, the production wishes to convey love in all its glory. There are the difficult and the good parts, the accepted and the rejected parts and the vulnerable as well as the closed parts.
Let’s take a journey into our selves. Let’s listen to the stories we tell ourselves. CLOWNS’ LABYRINTH is a visual treat into how we learn to step out of the maze of our emotions and memories that have kept us stuck for way too long!

Physical theatre is a performance that emphasizes more on physical movement than on dialogue delivery as far as its storytelling graph is concerned.
Why is dance theatre called theatre?

Is it the same as theatrical dance?
A dance performance with elements of theatre enriching it can be safely called theatrical dance. It puts more emphasis on dance than on its storytelling theatrical part.
