Geeta Chandran is synonymous with the Indian classical dance - Bharatanatyam. She is a renowned artiste who has synthesised the knowledge she received from her Gurus to imprint Bharatanatyam with her personal vision of the dance. In her dance presentations, she skillfully weaves abstract notions of joy, beauty, values, aspirations, myth and spirituality.
Chandran will perform solo Bharatanatyam at the Stein Auditorium, India Habitat Centre on April 8 as a part of NGO Yogdan’s Sur Sringar event. Pandit Madhup Mudgal will present Hindustani classical vocal.
Chandran will be accompanied on Nattuvangam by Guru S Shankar; vocals by Sudha Raghuraman; on Mridangam by MV Chander Shekar and on flute by G Raghuraman.
A polymath artiste, Geeta Chandran is celebrated not only for her deep and composite understanding of the art of Bharatanatyam, but also for her Carnatic music (she is a trained and accomplished vocalist).
She is the founder-president of Natya-Vriksha and artistic director of the Natya Vriksha Dance Company, known for the high aesthetic quality of its group presentations that showcase Geeta’s metier as a choreographer.
She guides reputed national cultural institutions and prestigious universities as their Board member. So mark your calender and head over to witness this classical treat.
When: April 8
Where: Stein Auditorium, IHC
