News Desk, News Nation 360 : The world-famous Delhi-based Bharatanatyam performer, scholar, and choreographer, Padmashri Guru Geeta Chandran, is coming to Kolkata! The Bharatanatyam community is ecstatic about her arrival at UDOK Performing Arts, led by Rajib Saha and Moumita Chatterjee. She will be showcasing her powerful performance, MARGAM, on Thursday, March 21, 2024, at 6:00 p.m. at Gyan Manch, Kolkata, and leading a two-day Bharatanatyam workshop on Friday and Saturday, March 22nd and 23rd, 2024, at Padatik Dance Centre. A talented group of musicians, including Vidwan Varun Raja Sekharan (Nattuvangam), Vidwan Venkatesh Kuppuswamy (Vocal), Vidwan Manohar Balatchandirane (Mridangam), and Vidwan G. Raghavendra Prasath (Violin), will accompany Geeta during her performance. On the 21st, Geeta Chandran will perform, showcasing her well-known skill in both abhinaya, or expression, and nritta, or pure dance. The Varnam, which has the most intricate choreography of any Bharatanatyam performance, will be the performance's high point. Geeta, who was trained by Guru K.N. Dakshinamurthi Pillai, the younger brother of the late Guru K.N. Dandayudhapani Pillai, will perform the Karaharapriya Ragam Varnam in Adi Talam. Vidwan Karaikudi Krishnamurthi's jathi theer manams, woven by the varnam, will be captivating. Looking forward to meeting young performers, learners and aspirants in Kolkata Guru Geeta Chandran said that for more than 50 years, she has performed her cherished art form, Bharatanatyam, with great joy and satisfaction! She now wishes to return to society the knowledge and skills she has acquired over these enlightening years. During her workshops, she would be imparting knowledge on how to use the stage, the craft, and—above all—how to win over audiences' hearts by using two special numbers as teaching tools.
