A dynamic male duet accompanied by live musicians (tabla and beatbox), who improvise a driving soundtrack around an intensely rhythmic structure, combining the traditional with the contemporary in a highly innovative way. 

Starting in their purest forms, seen through abstract mirrors, the mutual attraction of two distinct dance forms (Kathak and contemporary), brings them to a collision in which both cease to exist; rather, something new is formed. Clear and sharp with mesmerising physical articulation, the work draws the audience deeper into Balbir Singh’s exploration of the mutual attraction of opposites.

Decreasing Infinity performed to sell out audiences at Dublin Dance Festival and at Dance Base during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, as well as having performed at Internationale Tanzmesse nrw and opened festivals in Bilbao (ACT Festival) and New Delhi, India (Nritya Ganga).
