Ektatva is an amazing production featuring three of my most loved dancers. Three individuals with their very distinct style of dancing yet when they come together in this production we see oneness in their dance. The dance styles seen in this production are three of the major Indian Classical dance forms,Kathak,Odissi and Bharatnatyam.The concept has a very global appeal and transcends the boundaries of language and culture. They will be touring USA between 15 Oct to 15 Nov. For more information on the artists and the production write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Video is a small clip from the opening ceremony of the Common Wealth Games that took place in Delhi,India in Oct2010. Here each style of the Indian Classical Dance represented a season. The styles that we can see here are Odissi,Bharatnatyam,Kathak,Kuchipudi,Mohiniattam and Manipuri,representing the rich heritage of dance and music in the country. I do believe that they should have included Kathakali which is again a style of classical dance drama and a very popular form of Indian classical dance. None the less amazing show. Very synchronised dancing by the dancers and beautiful costumes. Makes me proud to be a part of such an amazing and ancient tradition.
