Kathakali by Margi
Let it Flow
Kathak by Anart Foundation
(Ishira Parikh & Maulik Shah)
Margi is an organisation dedicated to the revival of Kathakali and Kutiyattam, two classical art forms of Kerala. Training to students is imparted through the gurukul system. Over the last three decades, the organisation has worked to preserve and revive the unique art forms of Kerala. The Margi troupe has performed extensively in several countries including Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Germany, Japan, the U.K., Italy, the U.S., France and Spain.
Kalyanasougandhikam relates to an episode from the Mahabharata in which the Pandava princes are in exile in the forest. The performance is centred on the meeting between the two sons of Vayu, Hanuman and Bhima, when the latter goes in search of the divine flower.
The Anart Foundation was established by Ishira Parikh and Maulik Shah with a view to generate and extend awareness for classical dance and related arts. It is engaged in wide ranging activities from creating and staging dance productions, imparting performance-oriented training to working on research-oriented projects.
What is dance if not an expression of the innermost ideas, desires, and feelings of a human mind? Dance, akin to life, flows like a river reflecting all that we wish for. Kathak dance is replete with lucid movements and arresting rhythmic patterns; threading through this energized sphere, emerge rivulets of emotions and feelings.
