Bharatanatyam by Snigdha Menon & Sakshi Pujari, senior disciples of Bharatanatyam exponent and founder of Takshashila Dance Academy, Smt. Gayatri Subramanian.
Ever the diplomat, the Sakhi is wise and well intentioned, merging into the nayika’s shadow at certain times and challenging her at others. The most influential character in a piece, the Sakhi, plays a pivotal role as confidante, caregiver, messenger and catalyst. Celebrating the Sakhi through various compositions, in a traditional Bharatanatyam repertoire, the performance seeks to push the silent shadow into the spotlight for one evening.
Admission on a first-come-first-served basis. NCPA members will get preferential seating till 6.50 pm.
