      Bharatanatyam Lecture Demonstration by Narthaki Nataraj

      18.30 HrsAuditorium
      About SPIC MACAY (Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth):

      About Bhartanatyam: Bharatanatyam is an Indian classical dance form and presumably the oldest classical dance heritage of India. The name of the dance form was derived by joining two words, ‘Bharata’ and Natyam’ where ‘Natyam in Sanskrit means dance and ‘Bharata’ is a mnemonic comprising ‘bha’, ‘ra’ and ‘ta’ which respectively means ‘bhava’ that is emotion and feelings; ‘raga’ that is melody; and ‘tala’ that is rhythm. Thus, traditionally the word refers to a dance form where bhava, raga and tala are expressed.

      About the Artist: Narthaki Nataraj is a disciple of Tanjore Shri K P Kittappa Pillai, who is a direct descendant of the Tanjore Quartet Brothers (considered as fathers of Bharatnatyam). She learnt and practised under him in Gurukul for 14 years and specialized in Tanjore style Nayaki Bhava tradition.  She has received the SNA Puraskar Award from The President of India and a Senior Fellowship from Dept. of Culture, Govt. Of India. She has performed at all leading festivals in India, USA, UK and Europe.
