Explore the beauty and grandeur of Bharatanatyam with internationally acclaimed dancer and choreographer Ajith Bhaskar, together with the Suvarna Company dancers!

Bharatanatyam is one of the most fluid artforms that has the comprehensiveness to explore any idea or theme.

This 60-minute performance will showcase the versatility of this dance form with a unique selection of dances set to various genres of music within the Indian classical music framework.

And if you’re new to Bharatanatyam, not to worry – Ajith himself will be delivering a brief pre-show lecture demonstration to highlight the salient features of Bharatanatyam, providing insights into the pieces to be performed and opening fresh perspectives and deeper appreciation for the intricate and revered South Indian classical dance form.
