Shruti Laya Kendra Natarajaalaya will present a rare Bharatnatyam dance ballet,
'Pancha Bhootha Kshetram' (five cosmic elements), with Rajeswari Sainath dancing
to tisra triputa talam.
The dance ballet is composed by Kumbakonam Gajendran in Ragamalika. The music follows a three-part beat, which will challenge the dancer to synchronize her footwork with unusual timing. Such a structure has never been attempted earlier, the organizers claim. The narratives of the five stories merge finally into one realization that all elements separately and together represent divinity.
On the occasion, the Ganapathi Sachidananda award will be given to violinist Annavarapu Sri Ramaswamy and danseuse Indira Rajan. Please contact Rajeswari Sainath at 772-6735/789-7183/781-7730 for further details.
