Choreographed by Malini Srinivasan With Guest Choreographer Janaki Patrik
This evening’s performance is a tribute to the music of sarangi maestro late Pandit Ramesh Misra, whose inspirational music is featured in many of these dances. Malini Srinivasan presents excerpts from Tejas - Luminous, a dance production exploring the connections between the spiritual, the corporeal, light and sound. Including: the Evening’s solemn rituals, Dawn’s awakening body and spirit, and the Day’s ecstatic renewal.
Malini Srinivasan is a third-generation Bharatanatyam dancer, choreographer and teacher, and the disciple of Guru C.V. Chandrasekhar. Her company creates and performs works that connect the traditional and mythological worlds with our contemporary selves.
Trained in both modern dance (Merce Cunningham studio) and classical north Indian Kathak dance (Pt. Birju Maharaj), Janaki Patrik is the Artistic Director of The Kathak Ensemble & Friends.
