BANGALORE BEATS | JAYACHANDRAN PALAZHY, ATTAKKALARI DANCE COMPANY
Information on the activity
The material explored in this piece ranges from sinuous and terrestrial movements to Kalarippayattu kicks and leaps. While preserving a contemporary note, the piece draws inspiration from the complex rhythms, geometry, and precision of Bharata natyam, a classic Indian dance. Nevertheless, intense movements intersect with lighter and more playful interludes during which the performers emulate the rites, traditions, and festivities associated with Indian weddings.
