There’s a lot happening during the weekend. Metrolife lists out some of the interesting events .

Fluid movements tell a story

Striking : Savitha SastryBharatanatyam exponent Savitha Shastry will present the inaugural show of her latest production ‘Soul Cages’ on February 11, 7 pm at Chowdiah Memorial Hall.

The ‘Soul Cages’ is an artistic experience that captures the cycles of life and death as a journey, rather than an end in itself. This unique presentation is structured on the imagery and narrative of a story, told through the fluid grace of bharatanatyam.

This ballet speaks to the heart, thereby transcending the audience’s knowledge of bharatanatyam, without ever compromising the aesthetics and classicism of this art form. At its core, the ‘Soul Cages’ brings to life, a deeply thought provoking philosophy by examining it through the eyes of mythological characters and ordinary people.

Its strength lies in being able to project didactic theological values through the disarming simplicity of a child. Savitha is an empanelled artist with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations. She has performed across India, the Middle East, Australia, South East Asia, Europe, and the United States.
