SANGRAHA – A tapestry of bharatanatyam
Choreographer Ajith Bhaskar
Music Sreedev Rajagopal (composition & vocal rendition), TV Gopalakrishnan (composition) & Iraiyaman Thambi (poet)
SANGRAHA weaves seamlessly predominant features of this ancient classical South Indian dance form in a capsule. Through melody, lyrics, movement and mime, SANGRAHA brings forth the vibrant architectonic motives through the complexity of rhythms; and nuanced poignancy through intense expressive emotions. The repertoire engages the audience with an invocation, lullaby and a flourish of pure dance, extending an invitation to relish in the vast canvas of bharatanatyam.
