Triyatra: Choreographies in Bharatanatyam

A small bouquet of choreographies in the Bharatanatyam style, ‘Triyatra’ is a reflection on the dance journeys of Sneha Chakradhar, Divya Saluja and Radhika Kathal. Disciples of Smt. Geeta Chandran, the three dancers come together to revisit and choreograph traditional compositions from the Bharatanatyam repertoire, taught to them over the years by their guru and present them as a tribute to her 40th year of dancing.

‘Triyatra’ explores new movements and ideas within the classical framework of Bharatanatyam. Borrowing both from their intense training in this essentially solo dance form and the years of experience of dancing in group choreographies, the three dancers have attempted to choreograph not only pure dance pieces, but also abhinaya or interpretative compositions, finding novel means of presenting the narrative.

Artist and designer, Sandhya Raman invites you to be a part of this experience in the intimate setting of her studio in Lado Sarai, which is also currently hosting the photo exhibition on Geeta Chandran, ‘In the Click of a Movement’ by Shri Rakesh Sahai. The dancers will also showcase new drapes for dance, designed by Sandhya.

Join us on Sunday, November 23, 2014 at 5:30pm at Atelier, F-213C Lado Sarai, New Delhi.
