Alliance Francaise-Ashish Khohar’s Dance DIScourse’s 2nd event of 2013 focuses on bringing two divergent forms together. The idea is to see commonalities and meeting points. A must see for all who find Indian forms vastly varying. Ace historian-presenter will again help contextualize and present this episode of Dance DISCourse. Open to all and new members to Dance History Society are welcome to register (form or www.attendance-india.com). The evening begins with a film on dance, not to be missed at 6pm.
Indian classical dance is a poetic expression of life’s variegated moods and speaks through manifold rhythmic patterns, melodic gestures and subtle facial expressions, creating a world of ecstasy and ethereal existence. To share the same experience two renowned professional dancers of Karnataka, Anuradha Vikranth and Shama Krishna, come together to present ‘Nrityamilana’ a jugalbandi of two beautiful classical dance forms, Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi.
In ‘Nrityamilana’ one can see, Bharatanatyam style known for its technique and tradition; clarity and composition and the technique of Kuchipudi which makes use of fast rhythmic foot work and sculpturesque body movements. The Charis and Karanas have also been adopted to bring out the similarities between both the styles.
