An NCPA Presentation
Āpaḥ, meaning water, is one of the panchamahabhutas, the five basic elements. The programme is an ode to water in its many forms. Like ripples on water, the dance creation highlights choreography which extends the classical language of Bharatanatyam.
Malavika Sarukkai was trained in Bharatanatyam by gurus Kalyanasundaram, S.K. Rajarathnam and Kalanidhi Narayanan and has been performing for more than five decades. She is proficient in Odissi which she learnt from gurus Kelucharan Mohapatra and Ramani Jena. She has performed in major dance festivals in India and abroad. She is a recipient of senior fellowships and production grants from the Department of Culture, Government of India, for creating new work and extending the repertoire. She has choreographed and performed solo thematic productions. Sarukkai has received several awards, notably Padma Shri, Sangeet Natak Akademi Award, Kalaimamani, Nritya Choodamani (Sree Krishna Gana Sabha), Mrinalini Sarabhai Award, the Raza Award for the Arts, among others.
