DANCE: Youth in Dance
6.00 pm | 14th of June | Alliance française auditorium
The “Youth in dance” series of programmes is an annual event that was initiated in the year 2013. This festival of classical dance seeks to showcase young talent that is at the threshold of success. The intent is to not only propogate performance centric events but also to encourage those who have immersed themselves in the theoretical study and research of classical dance. In this regard, The YOUTH IN DANCE series is unique in that it presents original and inspiring works in music, theatre, therapy and allied fields of dance.
Guru Smt. Padma Murali, Director of the Padmalaya dance Foundation, Bangalore and the Director of the festival , along with her daughter Janani Murali and daughter-in-law Poornima Kaushik, has been instrumental in bringing unique festivals of dance to the Bangalore audiences. Having introduced the format of theme-based festivals through her annual IDA dance festival over a decade ago, the YOUTH IN DANCE series is yet another brainchild of hers to promote the Arts.
YOUTH IN DANCE 2015 will be presided over by Sri H.N. Suresh, Director, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Bangalore. “Talking Shop”: the segment on music will include a talk by Sri Karthik Hebbar (musician, composer) on the methodology of structuring and composing music for Abhinaya. “Performances” for the day include Sharadha Srinivasan, Poshini Zunjarward and Aninditha Ashok (Guru Padma Murali), Divya Hoskere (Guru Praveen Kumar), Divya Ravi (Guru Soundarya Srivatsa) and Shwetha Venkatesh (Guru B. Nagaraj).
