Emotions are an intrinsic part of human nature and play a pivotal role in shaping our personality and behaviour. Art has played an integral role in helping humans get a deeper insight into their emotional self.
With episodes from the Ramayana and Mahabaratha and compositions of great poets, this lec-dem aims to explore the “Navarasas” or the 9 basic human emotions through Bharathanatyam.
I am a Bharathanatyam performer and lecturer. I have been practising the art form for the past 19 years under the tutelage of Guru Smt. Anitha Guha, Chennai. I travel and perform for festivals within India and in USA. I train youngsters in the art form in India and abroad. My aim is to explore Bharathanatyam and its nuances to understand different aspects of life and educate through art. I am involved in workshops for children in India through “Spicmacay”, a non for profit organisation taking art to underprivileged schools across India.
