Description

Kuchipudi is one of eight classical dances of India, and is the hallmark art form of Southern tradition. Flawlessly combining complex technique with grace while adhering to Vedic guidelines as dictated by the Sage Bharata in the Natya Shastra (the ancient text for Indian dance and drama), Kuchipudi is a must-see art form and is one of the gems India has to display. This presentation is brought to you by Siddhendra Kuchipudi Art Academy, the premiere institution for Kuchipudi located in New Jersey, USA. The professionals of SKAA will be performing select pieces from a “margam” or standard repertoire including: Pari Pahi (invocatory song), Kamakshi Stuthi, Manduka Shabdam (one of the oldest pieces), Marakata Manimaya (a tarangam, the distinguishing feature of Kuchipudi from other Indian classical dances), Koluvai Unnade, and finally tarana (similar to thillana, often performed as the concluding piece). From beginning to end, tales from Hindu epics, deeds and characteristics of deities, and the nature of man are portrayed through the use of hand gestures, body flexions, dramatization, and abhinaya (facial expressions) to create one, beautiful show.
