Experience the richness of Bharatanatyam dance with Jayadev Raju in a solo performance!
Bharatanatyam is an Indian classical dance, ancient in origin and widely practiced and performed in its current format. It embodies a distinct technique of movement, expression, and drama, together with a sacredness in performing.
The programme will feature six choreographic pieces of the Bharatanatyam tradition, typical to the margam or ‘path’. Explanations in English & French will be presented. The dance performance will be accompanied by traditional and newly scored Indian classical music.
Jayadev Raju is an Ottawa-based Bharatanatyam dancer with over 20 years of freelance performances in Canada. In continuing his training, this solo performance in a Bharatanatyam margam is the second part of a traditional path of presentation
