Add to Calendar 2019-09-20 08:00 PM 1970-01-01 08:00 PM Asia/Kolkata An evening of Bharatanatyam with Mallika Sarabhai and Revanta Sarabhai

Challenging tradition and going beyond the realm of mythology, the scintillating mother-son duo of Mallika and Revanta Sarabhai present a classical Bharatanatyam margam. Tracing their journey from the early days of the art form in the historic temples of Tanjavur and Chidambaram to present times using Bharatanatyam to tell contemporary narratives, this hour-long spectacle showcases the versatility and aliveness of the pandanallur style. 

Bharatanatyam traditionally speaks of devotion and the search to be united with the Supreme being, of the atma and paramatma. The lyrics are usually from the point of view of the heroine, the nayika, searching for a male god. However, the style is a living one and a language of great sophistication. In this performance Mallika and Revanta present both traditional pieces and new ones, written for today’s world, addressing pressing issues that we face today. 

Mallika Sarabhai

Mallika Sarabhai has been one of India’s leading choreographers and dancers for over four decades. In constant demand as a soloist and with her own dance company, Darpana, she has been creating and performing both classical and contemporary works. She has also produced over 3000 hours of television work talking of issues of the environment, women, communal harmony and violence, using the most popular genres of TV. She has a Ph.D. in Organisational Behaviour and has been honorary Director of Darpana Academy of Performing Arts for 40 years. 

She first came to international notice when she played the role of Draupadi in Peter Brook’s The Mahabharata for 5 years, first in French and then English, performing in France, North America, Australia, Japan and Scotland. 

Always an activist for societal education and women’s empowerment, Mallika began using her work for social change. In 1989 she created the first of her hard-hitting solo theatrical works, Shakti: The Power of Women. Since then Mallika has created numerous stage productions which have raised awareness, highlighted crucial issues and advocated change, several of which productions have toured internationally as well as throughout India. 

In the mid-90s Mallika began to develop her own contemporary dance vocabulary and went on to create short and full-length works which have been presented in India and over 50 other countries.

Revanta Sarabhai

Revanta is a dancer, choreographer and actor, and forms the third generation of artists from the legendary Sarabhai family, after his grandmother Mrinalini and mother Mallika Sarabhai. Having made his solo classical dance debut at age 8, he has been performing professionally and touring internationally with the Darpana Performance Group as well as independently since 1999. Over the years, Revanta has matured as a classical dancer bringing tremendous energy, masculinity and charisma to the stage, along with excellent technique in both nritta and abhinaya. In recent years, Revanta has developed a unique repertoire of Bharatanatyam pieces, breaking outside the boundaries of tradition, and tackling themes that are relevant to the society and times we live in —presenting the classical form in a refreshing manner to young and modern audiences the world over.

Revanta started his Bharatanatyam training at the age of 5 at the Darpana Academy under the mentorship of his grandmother and mother. Revanta trained under Smt. Gayatri Balagurunathan, Smt. Kamala Rani, and most significantly Guru Smt. Maheshwari Nagarajan, completing his arengetram, or aradhana, as it is known at Darpana, at the age of 14. He continued pursuing his training in the classical dance style in a dedicated fashion, alongside his experimenting with choreography, combining aspects of classical dance with innovative contemporary movement. Over the years, Revanta has performed several Bharatanatyam productions choreographed by both Mrinalini and Mallika Sarabhai, including many famous dance-dramas such as the Ramayana and Mahabharata, Kumara Sambhava, Meghadoota, Nalakhyan, and Shakuntalam. Revanta has performed at several prestigious festivals and venues both in India and abroad, including the

Sangeet Natak Akademi Nritya Pratibha (Jodhpur), Nalanda Nrityotsav (Mumbai), Jaya Smriti (Mumbai), Purush Festival (Mumbai), Kala Ghoda (Mumbai), Sawai Gandharva (Pune), Poona Music Society (Pune), India Habitat Centre (New Delhi), India International Centre (New Delhi), DIAF (Delhi), Nehru Centre (Mumbai), Nehru Centre (London), Bharati Vidhya Bhavan (Chennai), Saptak Festival (Ahmedabad), Erasing Borders (New York), Dakshina Festival (Washington DC), Alchemy Festival (London), Daredevas Festival (London), Centre Mandappa (Paris), and Cadance Festival (Netherlands) amongst others.

Since 2010, Revanta has been developing a unique new repertoire of Bharatanatyam pieces that stay true to the classical form, yet explore modern themes that are relevant to society today. Under the guidance of Mallika Sarabhai, writing original poems in English and translating them to classical Tamil, Revanta’s new pieces in the form of varnams and padams present subjects as diverse as long-distance relationships, the environment and it’s destruction, globalisation and other such contemporary topics, all within the classical context. In breathing new life into the Bharatanatyam form, Revanta has been successful in bringing a fresh context to the classical dance and making it popular among a younger modern audience both in India as well as abroad.

Revanta holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (with honours) at the University of the Arts (USA) as well as a Masters in Performance and Creative Research from Rohampton University (UK).

Add to Calendar 2019-09-21 06:30 PM 2019-09-21 06:30 PM Asia/Kolkata The Gundecha Brothers Dhrupad is believed to have originated from the Sama Vedic traditions, and engaging with this musical form is a deeply meditative, yet dynamic and awakening experience. The Gundecha Brothers are the foremost practitioners of Dhrupad today and have developed a highly sophisticated sound through decades of study of its subtle nuances, Ragas and the body's physiology. Through their Gurukul in Bhopal and its branches across the country, they have been very successful in training several talented young Dhrupad performers to take the tradition ahead. This concert will be an opportunity to dive into an exploration of the possibilities of sound as developed through a centuries-old tradition, accompanied by the dynamic sound and rhythm of the Pakhawaj" Gundecha Brothers The importance of the Gundecha Brothers to Dhrupad/Hindustani classical music is not only that they have made Dhrupad accessible and popular throughout the world but that they exhibit a certain state-of-the-art quality in the style of their performance. This is firstly their vocalism which is strong, resonant and exquisitely shaped for time and tension, and their concert technique that brings their voices to merge with each other so perfectly that their combined presence on the stage is not of two singers but of one Ragaand one song. This is a subtle evolution of the art in the Jugalbandi format, which the brothers have developed. THE GUNDECHA BROTHERS are the most active performers of the ancient Indian musical vocal genre known as Dhrupad on the world musical scene today. They have made numerous international tours visiting more than 25 countries around the globe and have recorded more than three dozen CDs from various national and international music labels. In 2012, Umakant and Ramakant, both vocalists and the elder of the three brothers, received from the government of India the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honor of India, for their contribution to Indian classical music. Together with Akhilesh, the youngest brother and a performer on the barrel drum known as pakhawaj, they operate the Dhrupad Sansthan in Bhopal, India,a unique musical academy patterned on the ancient guru-shishya (teacher-disciple) tradition of education, with students from more than 20 countries, as well asfrom various parts of India, participating. Born in Ujjain in central India, the brothers were initiated into music by their parents. All three received conventional university educations while also studying music. Umakant and Ramakant learned from the renowned Dhrupad vocalist Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar, and also with the late Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar (the distinguished performer of Rudra veena) at the Dhrupad Kendra in Bhopal. Akhilesh, the youngest brother, studied the pakhawaj with the prominent percussionists Pandit Shrikant Mishra and Raja Chhatrapati Singh JuDeo, and in addition to his brothers, has accompanied almost all of the major Dhrupad vocalists and instrumentalists of India. All of the brothers appear regularly on local and national radio and television. Bangalore vtmani@dnm.in false MM/DD/YYYY

(Hanuman, the monkey-man of godlike nature, and Bhima were step-brothers, both being sons of Vayu, the god of the wind. After the coronation of Rama and Sita, Hanuman retired to the seclusion of the reserved forest to spend his days in meditation on his lord, Rama, the gods having conferred immortality on him.) Hanuman is disturbed by the violence of Bhima’s approach and wonders what the cause can be. By his second sight, he knows that all the ado is being created by his step-brother, Bhima. He wants to be helpful, but before revealing who he is, Bhima must be humbled. So Hanuman transforms himself into an aged and decrepit old monkey and lies in Bhima’s path. Bhima is annoyed and irritated to find a creature obstructing his path. He cannot climb over the monkey because he knows that he has a half-brother who is a high-born monkey, so he tells it to get out of his way. But the monkey retorts, “I am so infirm that I cannot move my limbs, but if you wish you may move my tail to one side with your club and pass on. “Impatient to proceed, Bhima tries to move the monkey’s tail, but he finds that his club is firmly fixed in the powerful grip of the tail. All his efforts to extricate it prove futile. He has never known defeat before, and feels sure that the monkey-shaped beings before him must be good: he therefore penitently asks him to reveal himself. The decrepit old monkey leaps to life and says, “I am Hanuman, your brother”. Bhima apologises for his arrogance and asks Hanuman to show him the divine form that he assumed when he made his great leap to Lanka in search of Sita. Hanuman complies with this request and then tells Bhima how to find Kubera’s garden and obtain the flowers he is looking for. He returns Bhima’s club to him with his blessings.
