Samanvaya expresses the merging of all the strong facets of an art form which makes it a complete medium of aesthetic enjoyment .The music, dance and abhinaya or mime in the presentation mode of traditional repertoire or margam in Mohiniyattam will open the possibilities and expressiveness of this gentle form.
A professional, Indian classical dancer, trained in Bharatanatyam and Sattriya, Prateesha Suresh is dedicated to the promotion of Indian Art and Culture. She along with her troupe will present Sattriya.
“HARIHARA TATVA” is “oneness of Hari (Vishnu) & Hara (Shiva)”, the two major divinities of the Hindu philosophy. In the Vishnu Puran this concept is brought forth in the love story of Usha and Aniruddh. Kishna and Shiva are pitted against each other in a fearsome battle. The story unfolds through the Kangra paintings of Chamba.
