Terence Lewis is best known for his unusual themes and contemporary dance pieces. After quitting choreography in Bollywood, the artiste is now set to make a comeback to dance theatre after a decade. His new production, Scrambled Eggs Or Sunny Side Up, showcases contemporary dance routines and will be staged at the St Andrews Auditorium, Bandra on May 5.


“Television and films left me with no time and I wanted to do something really significant and path-breaking in contemporary dance. Now that I have quit films, I can devote more time to what I love doing -- dance theatre,” says Terence, who has worked on films like Lagaan (2001), Jhankar Beats (2003) and Aisha (2010).

His troupe that is performing at the show comprises 20 dancers. These performers come from different walks of life — from a French professor, to a vet or a small-town tailor to a student from an affluent family. The group has been rehearsing for 40 days now.
“It’s never enough. Just when you think you’ve got it, Terence sir makes us start from the very beginning,” says Dhanisha Shinde, one of the dancers in the troupe.

Catch the show on May 5, at St Andrews Auditorium, Bandra (W), 6.30 pm onwards. Tickets are priced at Rs 250, Rs 350 and Rs 500. They can be booked on www.bookmyshow.com.
