Event Details

An evening celebrating choreographies born during lockdown

Bharatanatyam by Anand Sachitanandan & Jayalakshmi,
Kathak by Pooja Pant Dance Company and Mohiniattam by Sujatha Nair

An NCPA Presentation

The national lockdown had taken away a lot of privileges from us, but it has also been a good teacher, a catalyst that has sowed the seeds of new knowledge and forced artistes to start thinking out of the box and create work never thought of before. This evening is the first of many such presentations which feature choreographies that have been born during lockdown. Some of these choreographies have been presented online in a limited space to suit the mobile camera screen and will now be remodelled to be featured on a live performance stage. There will be presentations by group members who have redesigned a choreography that was originally created by merging videos shot in their individual spaces. The NCPA brings them all together, not online but physically for the first time after a long gap.

The edition would have a Bharatanatyam duet presentation by Anand – Jayalakshmi, a group presentation by Pooja Pant Dance Company and Mohiniattam by Sujatha Nair.

Box Office is now Open.
