Tanjore – The Golden age of Bharatanatyam

1h 43m
Genres / Categories: Dance

A visual journey into the world of bharatanatyam through the ages of the great kingdom of Tanjore of South India. This dance performance contextualises a very rich history of influences of the royal rulers in nurturing dance and music from the 10–16 century. Melody, dance and poetry become a splendorous spectacle presented in a variety of compositions tracing the evolution of the dance through this golden age.

Taking the spectator on a beautiful path of discovery is the Sutradhari (storyteller), played by Tanjavur Lakshmi Viswanathan, and dances performed by Dance India Asia-Pacific alumni over the past five years, accompanied by musicians from Singapore and India. These dances are choreographed by members of the Dance India Asia-Pacific faculty — Priyadarsini Govind, Bragha Bessell, Sheejith Krishna, Lakshmi Vishwanathan and Mythili Prakash.
