‘Bullets over Bishop Lavis’ hits Baxter D
AY after day people have to fight the gangs infesting their streets and killing their children.
Baxter feasts on Indian dance recital THE Vadhini Indian Arts Academy, a non profit organisation, will be hosting Amritam, a Bharatanatyam recital with a fresh approach. Amritam, meaning Divine Nectar, will include some of India’s richest and most famous poetry, emulating the divinity of the Supreme Being. Inspired by the excellent music, choreographer Kumar Sarveshanhas deviates from the conventional constructs of a Bharatanatyam Recital, to string together a performance which is accessible to all members of the audience. The aesthetics and theoretical accuracy has remained the main focus. While this has been an exploration of the spirit (and self)
for the choreographer and performers, much thought has been given to ensure that audiences are introduced to the richness of a Bharatanatyam Recital in a gentle manner, to ensure that they understand the intent of the poet and performer at all times. Directed by Shrimati Darshana Rama, Amritam is performed by a cast of dancers dedicated to the preservation and sharing of this most ancient of Arts. They captivate with their easy grace, their athletic prowess, their strength of character and their quiet dignity. The dance recital takes place at the Baxter Theatre on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 April. Tickets are available at Computicket and cost R120.
