Ariyaa – A Bharatnatyam Experience
July 21, 6:30 pm
About " Ariyaa…?"
A Bharatnatyam presentation emphasising on Krishna as a concept and not as a person we often confuse him to be.
Many times we are faced with a question " Aren't you bored of depicting Krishna and Rama innumerable times? Why can't you dance about the crash of the stock market or the earthquake that just happened?
"Ariyaa..?" depicts Krishna as a constant battle. A battle in which we only imagine that we have either lost or gained something.
The presentation traces the creative story of the young maidens -Madhura and Mohana; their relationship with Krishna and the emotional turmoil it brings to all three of them.
The presentation aims to show the audience that Krishna is present in everyone's lives; but not as a dark-hued, flute playing boy with a crown of peacock feathers.
Every day, our Krishna changes form. One day he is the final exam, the next minute he is the promotion and in the next instance, he is your child. The only thing which remains constant is the feeling that your world will cease to exist without him. You will be shattered if you don’t achieve him. You will drown if you don’t breathe him.
" Ariyaa…?" is scheduled to premiere on March 24th at ADA Rangamandira.
Why you should support the Arts
All civilizations are remembered by the Art that they leave behind. A society that forgets Art; risks losing its soul.
Artists spend about 15 to 20 years in rigorous training before climbing onto a platform and presenting their original choreography and ideas; the goal of which is realising the importance of human life and our connection to the world around us.
If the Kings of the past had refused to contribute to the growth of textiles, health, and arts, today we would not have Silk, Ayurveda, Jewellery making and many such art forms. Now, the onus is on us to take arts to the next level.
