Daijiworld Media Network – Chikmagalur (SB)

Chikmagalur, Jul 30: Mamatha Datta, a professional Bharatanatyam dancer and teacher from Mayuri Natya Kalakendra at Koppa here presented an introductory Bharatanatyam performance along with her daughter Mandara at Indian Cultural Centre (ICC), a unit of Indian Embassy in Thailand.

The dancers first performed, Pushpanjali, a salutation with flowers in hands and then moved on to Alaripu meaning the first flowering and traditionally the first dance in the modern Bharatanatyam. Impressive performances for Bagilolu Kai Mugidu, poem in Kannada by poet Kuvempu describing medieval temples of Belur and Halebidu and Yoga Nritta, the presentation of yogic postures in classical dance and brief demonstration through dance and music were taken up the duo. The programme ended with Maha Ganapathim, a parting benediction in praise of Lord Ganesha, incidentally both loved in Thailand and India.

A hall full of spectators from India, Thailand, Europe and the USA witnessed the performances with a lot of curiosity, enjoyed the show and later came up to the artists with several questions and inquiries. Students of ICC too were present at the programme. The performance included classical and semi-classical dance forms. ICC director and organizer Renuka Narayanan was present.

Mamatha was on a trip to Thailand from July 15 to 29.
