Event Details

Marga Natya by Piyal Bhattacharya & troupe
Bharatanatyam by Sridevi Nrithyalaya  & Troupe

A scholar of the Natyashastra, Piyal Bhattacharya has been working on the practical reconstruction of Bharata’s text. The main aim of this research is to dig up the long-lost performance tradition described in the Natyashastra in totality. He has studied the Saraswati veena, pakhawaj, pung achoba, miravu, and dhrupad and rudra veena of the Dagar gharana under Asit Banerjee. As part of his research to trace the migration of the ancient Indian harp system to Myanmar, he even travelled to the country to learn the traditional Burmese harp.

Sridevi Nrithyalaya, an institution that specialises in the Melattur style of Bharatanatyam, was founded in 1987 by Sheela Unnikrishnan. Sridevi Nrithyalaya has produced many successful solo dance artistes and promising dance teachers, along with more than 450 solo choreographies, 43 thematic presentations and 19 mega dance-dramas. The institution has been invited to perform at many prestigious dance shows and festivals around the world, including the London Olympics where five of Nrithyalaya’s artistes participated, alongside other Indian artistes.
