Exploring the digital world through the traditional dance form of India.(Bharatanatyam)
Bharatanatyam is a classical Indian dance form originating in Tamil Nadu, India. It consists of movements inspired from the sculptures found from history accompanied by classical music. It is a composition of science and art ties up with three elements: sentiments, melody and rhythm. The techniques are complex and require high skills to master them. It consists of 64 principles of coordinated hand, feet, face and body movements. The dancer has to express through movements the moods of passion, heroic sentiments, fear, anger, hatred, tenderness, laughter, amazement and peace. Several years ago this art was used in the form of communication through our actions. Today we use this art form to educate the benefits of Bharatanatyam through our actions and spread digitally. We will have an interactive session along with dance performance and I will explain theoretically about the performance and the technology aspect to further this traditional art.
