Sadhana: An Evening of Bharatanatyam

An Evening of Bharatanatyam with Live Music

Friday, April 26, 2024 | Doors: 7:30pm, Show: 7:30pm
Heritage Playhouse
662 North Road Gibsons, BC Canada V0N 1V9

Experience the beauty and depth of one of India's most profound dance forms - Bharatanatyam - presented by one of BC's leading practitioners of the art, Sujit Vaidya. Bharatanatyam was born in the courts and temples of South India and was performed and developed by female-led hereditary communities of experts in the art form. It evolved to adapt to the stage, with an emphasis on devotional themes (at the expense of the erotic), while still allowing for the expression of emotions through music, acting, hand gestures, and intricate rhythmic compositions. The performance will be enhanced by the presence of a live ensemble of musicians, featuring Ramya Kapadia (vocal), Raman Kalyan (flute), Curtis Andrews (mridangam) and special guest from India, Vaidya's guru/teacher A. Lakshman performing the role of the nattuvanar (conductor of the ensemble and recitation of rhythmic dance compositions).
