Mandakini Trivedi

The Multi-Textured Idiom Of Narrative Expression ( Abhinaya) In Classical Indian Dance.
Lecture-Demonstration by Mandakini Trivedi.
Sunday, 15th - 5:00 pm.

Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee Mandakini Trivedi has received her training in Mohiniattam under Dr. Kanak Rele at the Nalanda Nritya Maha Vidyalaya. She is the recipient of a Fellowship of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India for her research in Mohiniattam.

The abhinaya in Classical Indian Dance is a unique form of narrative & emotional expression. Quite different from expression in contemporary theatre and from expression in film /Cinema; it is a product of multiple inputs from structured movement (dance), music, poetry, mystical/philosophical thought and above all a transcendental vision of sacred art that makes it operate at many levels.

A student of classical Indian dance unconsciously imbibes it as a whole quite unaware of the ingredients. The lecture-performance by Mandakini Trivedi will deconstruct the abhinaya in classical Indian Dance. The presentation will be relevant for all classical Indian dance styles.
