10oct7:30 pmArno KamolikaA Bharata-natyam interpretation of Tagore's Shyama

Event Details

Rabindranath Tagore’s epic dance drama, Shyama, has been beautifully adapted and has been given an entirely new outlook by the dancer Arno Kamolika in her solo bharata-natyam production. Steering away from traditional repertoires of bharata-natyam, this experimental piece uses this renowned Indian classical dance form to express the story. Arno, through her expressive dancing and facial expressions, portrays all the characters of this play as a solo performer. The production is choreographed by Jai Govinda.

The romantic tragedy of Tagore is based on the story of Shyama, a powerful royal court dancer. Shyama falls in love with a foreign merchant who is falsely imprisoned by the King’s guard. The story slowly unfolds as Shyama travels great lengths to save her love from unjust execution, at times at the expense of others’ life.
