The Perini Shiva Tandavam has an interesting and wayward history. It flourished almost a 1000 years back under the rule of the Kakatiyas. Also, emperors like Ganapathi Deva, Rudramma Devi and Prataprudra encouraged it.

Perini is actually commonspeak for Prerana. It was done on a Balapeetam erected opposite the image of the main deity, and performed in the spirit of Prerana, emulating Lord Shiva's Tandava.

After the decline of the Kakatiyas, this art form was completely lost, which is why what happened 700 years later, seems rather like a improbably miraculous happening. The dance was resurrected back to its original form by the efforts of one Sri Nataraja Ramakrishna, through the study of the 'Nritta Ratnavali' written by Jayapa Senani (the commander-in-chief of the Kakatiya armies in the 12th century), and the sculptures in the Ramappa temple of Warangal.

Today, it is back as close as it can get to its original form, vying for mindspace with other popular dance-forms. And that is the story of how Dumpeti Prakash is performing the Perini Shiva Tandavam at 1900 hrs at Shilparamam on the 8th of January.

Dumpeti Prakash is as accomplished a exponent of this exquisite dance form, as they get. He has worked as an instructor in this art in the Sri Nataraja Ramakrishna Nritya Niketan since 1996. For his skill, he has recieved the awards of Nritya Chudamani, Perini Rudra by Andhra Natya Peetam, Vijaywada, Atmiya Puraskar by AP Police Dept, Sircilla, Abhinaya Best Youth Classical Dancer by Abhinaya Nrithya Bharathi, Eluru.

This unassuming dancer has performed all over India, as well in countries like Malayasia, Singapore, Kathmandu, Indonesia and Dubai.

Watch Dumpeti Prakash and his troupe bring alive a tradition of 10 centuries ago, with their nimble, practised moves as Shilparamam plays host to an exhilirating trek across time.
