The Margazhi season plays host to a variety of dance recitals in Chennai. A sample of some of the performances.
In Malavika Sarukkai - an artist rooted in tradition but with a uniquely contemporary sensibility - one of India's most profound classical arts, Bharatanatyam, is being re-interpreted, renewed, invigorated. The film is not simply about Malavika Sarukkai; it deliberates the valuable connections and departures that the artist makes from a hallowed and, often, unforgiving tradition. The film will be screened as part of The Hindu Friday Review November Fest on November 16 at The Music Academy at 11 a.m.
