Kalamidhi Performance - February 2019 - Kuchipudi

Kalanidhi

Dance Place
3225 8th St NE, Washington, District of Columbia 20017

Created from the words of Kalanidhi’s own dancers and set to an original score, "Why We Dance" expresses in movement four aspects of Kuchipudi: heritage, freedom, storytelling, and community. From a spiritual exploration of Kuchipudi’s origins to a playful celebration of lifelong friendship, each work reveals a unique aspect of Kuchipudi that has captured the dancers’ imagination.

Kalanidhi Dance performs classical and original works using the timeless visual vocabulary of Kuchipudi, one of India’s eight classical dance forms. Guided by Founder and Artistic Director Anuradha Nehru, Kalanidhi seeks to push Kuchipudi in new and exciting directions while remaining authentic to its style. Over the last decade, Kalanidhi has collaborated across genres and musical styles to critical acclaim, presenting Kuchipudi to Yanni, Philip Glass, and Ravi Shankar, and performing with Opera Lafayette, The New York Baroque Dance Company, and the Sean Curran Company. The New York Times has called Kalanidhi “a combination of bright energy, full-bodied sweetness and rapid precision” and a “rare amalgam of prime dance virtues.”

Pallavi With Stillness - Kolkata - March 2019

Pallavi With Stillness

Sparsh Studio for Performing Arts
March 1, 2019 - Friday 
ICCR Satyajit Ray Auditorium, Kolkata

Each choreography in the Pallavi series has had its unique focus.
 In Pallavi and Space  the first performance of the series, the choreography highlighted the primacy of the chowk in odissi — the first position, embodying the dancer’s concentrated consciousness and availability to execute any movement in the
classical repertoire.

Pallavi in Time in  spotlighted the tribhang (tri-bent) standing stance,
characteristic of both odissi and Hindu temple sculpture. The aim: to elaborate the delicate, delight of the dancer’s body cutting into time, marked by rhythm, the beat of a song or reverberation footfalls.

In Pallavi with Stillness Raka’s choreography works to deconstruct odissi grammar by first isolating and then accenting torso movements—a stunning, mesmerising feature of the dance’s repertoire. As in all previous iterations, the choreography is original, bold and utterly of the dancer’s skill, technique and commitment.
