Abhisaar: In pursuit of …

By Nirupama - Rajendra

Samvatsat-Kathaa brings you the cosmic coition and divine daintiness of prakriti and ritus. Prakriti (nature) becomes the nayika, and ritus (seasons) partake the roles of different nayaks. Grishma is a tormenting consort, Varsha is the giver, Sharad brings a state of balance and festivity and Shishir brings a momentary stagnancy and decrepitude. Abhisaar: In pursuit of … tells the story of ‘pursuit’ in nature, culture and human emotions. The theme derives its inspiration from the concept of Abhisaar from Indian literature. Philosophically, it is the search within oneself for realising eternal beauty. It blends classical Kathak with the special movement vocabulary from the Natyashastra, re-energised with contemporary sensibilities. Abhisaar is performed as duets to original musical scores created especially for the production by great maestros of music. We collaborate with Guru G. V. Ramani Natya Kala Foundation to present two unique presentations – New Age Kathak by Nirupama - Rajendra and Marga Nritya by Kalamandalam Piyal and troupe. Marga Nritya is a dance created by Piyal after extensive research into the traditions of the magnum opus of Bharata’s Natyashastra.

In collaboration with Guru G V Ramani Natya Kala Foundation (Marghazi Festival)
