Bharatanatyam is a form of Indian classical dance that evolved in the temple’s of Tamilnadu and nearby regions,probably the oldest classical dance form of India.Here Dr.Rajashree Warrier,a pioneer in classical dance forms reinterprets Chithrangana,the poem by renowned poet Prabha Varma ,via Bharathanatyam(Bhava.Raga.Thala) and projects the audience to a visual,musical,dance and spiritual journey….
It is said that Bharathanatyam is an attempt to embody the divine beauty,charm,rhythm..music and symbols that exist in heaven.Mastering this art form requires a lifetime effort,or perhaps the art is transcended through centuries via the soul of the performer,the artist,or a higher consciousness.
