Ragas, Sarod and Fiery Dance

Fri 10 November, 06:30 PM, Sadler's Wells

Session 1

Mythili Prakash bhatnatyam dance solo 

Prakash, an international star in the Bharatnatyam dance world, is a force of nature celebrated for her brilliant technique, vivid characterisation and electrifying energy.

In the transfixing solo, Jwala: Rising Flame, Prakash invokes the image of fire and its behaviour: how it moves, what it means, what it gives and takes from us. Her warmth and brightness as a performer suit the theme; those qualities surfaced as soon as the light came up on her slowly turning figure”  The New York Times

Session 2

Debasmita Bhattacharya sarod

Gurdain Rayatt tabla

Bhattacharya is creating shockwaves across musical circles in her native India and beyond with her remarkable talent on the sarod and powerhouse performances. She is joined on the tabla by Rayatt, with blistering

dynamism and a flair for sumptuous rhythmic balance. Immerse yourself into the deep unfolding of ragas.

Session 3

Dheerendra Tiwari kathak dance solo

Dheerendra Tiwari showcases his dynamic performance style in  the solo entitled SHIVO-AHAM- An Ode to the Soul. This dynamic and soulful Kathak solo is as much exploration of the dance form than meditation upon life, inspired by the Advaita philosophy teachings about how to reach a state of spiritual bliss, revealed to gods.
