Sari: The Unstitched is a celebration of the creation of this unique drape in constant play with the body, both in stillness and in movement. This show was conceived to rekindle the lost playfulness and individuality of the sari. As the quintessential expression of the weavers’ imagination, talent and skill, the sari continues to be the jewel of the Indian hand loom industry. This union of the sari and the wearer exudes the sensuality of dance. The performance highlights the stages in the journey from cotton pod to a magnificent fabric, draped in a range of wearing styles.
