An Evening with Navarasa created by Sindhoor/Natyaveda/S M Raju
“In the Indian aesthetic discourse the audience is called: “Sahrudaya” meaning “of the same heart”. I believe that audiences are our witness, supporters and our equal-hearts. Each performance is a journey that we (artists) take bravely because we have our “Sahrudaya” with us.” – Dr. Aparna Sindhoor, Artistic Director An Evening with NAVARASA is a collage of twenty years of works created by Dr. Aparna Sindhoor, Anil Natyaveda and S M Raju – a journey through traditional Indian Dance into a contemporary dance-theater. The evening will feature works inspired by the Indian classical dance traditions such as the Mysore Style of Bharata Natyam, martial art Kalari ppayattu, Contemporary South Asian Dance-Theater. The audiences will be treated with a range of work that have never been performed in Boston along with Navarasa’s most popular pieces. The eight classical heroines coming to life with all their exuberance, dancers calling the goddess of wealth, a prince suffering from PTSD, a goddess of power saving the world and dancers celebrating the beauty of love and compassion – all in one evening presented with a talk-back after each show and a reception to celebrate with the “Sahrudayas” - “equal-hearted”. The show is open to all ages and is a fundraiser for Navarasa’s “Dance For Everyone” program that brings free dance education to more than 150 students in India and USA. With music by award-winning composer Isaac Thomas Kottukapally, Prasanna, N Srinath, H K Narayana and others dance choreographed and directed by Aparna Sindhoor and Anil Natyaveda, concept developed by Sindhoor and S M Raju.
