19th & 20th February
Bharatanatyam Workshop by Rama Vaidyanathan
Mumbai premiere of CHITRAVALI - A Picture Book on Krishnamaya by Rama Vaidyanthan
The vastness of Krishna's form can be celebrated through various forms of art and to become Krishnamaya we can immerse ourselves in the sweetness of his unparalleled beauty through a whole gambit of artistic expressions. As no art form can exist in isolation, CHITRAVALI brings together three creative paths of painting, music, and dance to create a picture book where we can see, hear and experience Krishna. Ancient miniature paintings, Sanskrit verses, Bandishes from Hindustani music and the dance form of Bharatanatyam, all form petals of a lotus that blossom together to spread the fragrance of Krishnamaya. Just as each petal of a lotus is vital to its blossom, each of these artistic sensibilities is essential to collectively capture the spirit of Krishna.
Exploring women from mythology
SOORPANAKA presented by Dakshina Vaidyanathan in Bharatanatyam
AMRAPALI by Dr. Neena Prasad in Mohiniattam
Bharatanatyam Workshop by Parshwanath Upadhye
Mumbai premiere of HARA by Parshwanath Upadhye & Punyah Dance Company
Hara is the story of Lord Shiva's unmatched love for Sati who is none other than Goddess Parvathi. In retelling the myths of Shiva which have traversed the mediums of narrations Punyah has attempted to project the very essence of the stories. In doing so Punyah has tried to reflect the profundity of these stories rather than mere narration. Following the traditional approach the dancers, or more appropriately the devotees who dance, tell their favourite stories about lord Shiva.
