Description

Over two centuries Bharatanatyam has evolved from a highly codified style to one affording the maximum freedom to innovate. The journey of the dance from the temple to the proscenium is a fascinating story.

No other from has traversed such a long distance without losing its original content and yet being a sparkling example of creative evolution in terms of material, music, costume, etc. Bharatanatyam today ranks as a major cultural symbol of India. The heritage, the histrionics, the pioneers, prodigals and prima donnas of this dance form are what this book celebrates.

Bharatanatyam is synonymous with Bharat – India- which dances to the eternal sounds of the drums of the universe. In that the dance is like Time, a performance without end or beginning.

ETERNAL INDIA SERIES

The cultural expression of India is as varied in style as it is in form and this is due partly to the size of the land, its myriad religions, races, beliefs, customs an its many layered history.

The series combines pieces of this splendid mosaic with an eye on the apparent as well as the hidden nuances; on tradition and continuity as well as the winds of change.
