A celebration of dance

The charity dance show organised recently by Samriddhi, the Indian dance association of Mount Carmel College, featured the best of artistes from various dance forms. The performers had obviously put a lot of thought into which piece they would like to present.

 Hari and Chethana — a kathak duo — began their performance with a piece titled Omkara. Talking about the piece, Hari says, “It defines the path of true piousness, through the power of truth, dharma and the love from a mother, father and guru.”

The next piece, Madhur Madhav, is a popular Swathi Thirunal composition. The last piece, Sargam in raga malhaar, is a rhythmic rain dance. The next performance was by Vandana Supriya, an exponent of odissi. She began the recital with a mangala charan and moved on to perform a megh pallavi meaning ‘blossoming.’ She concluded the performance with a piece titled Moksha, meaning ‘spiritual liberation’. The Tandava Dance Ensemble presented Chathurmukhi. “This includes a popular and mesmerising Kriti nada tanumanisham, written by Tyagaraja and set to raga chitta ranjini,” explains the spokesperson of the Ensemble.

In ‘Urban Zone’, that is produced by The Kha Foundation, the trio — Deepak K S, Charan C S and Amaresha K — took on caricatures of varied experiences of urban city life.
