Dance Offered to the Gods

South Indian Classical Dance: Bharata Natyam Performed by Malvika Sarukkai – One Night Only, Wednesday, March 21, 2012.


(3/16/2012)

Bali will enjoy rare opportunity to see the internationally acclaimed Malavika Sarukkai perform the South Indian Classical dance form of Bharata Natyam on Wednesday, March 21, 2012, at 7 pm at Geoks Stage in Singapadu, Gianyar in a free concert co-sponsored by the Indian Cultural Center, Bali in cooperation with Geoks Stage.

Bharata Natyam dates from 1,000 BCE. Performed solo, conventionally by women, it is in its essence a dance of dedication intended as an offering to the Gods. 
Consisting of both pure dance via clear-cut movements and sculpturesque poses, it is also an expressive celebration presented in accompaniment of songs. Those songs are typically about love, and a longing to become one with the Ultimate.


Ms. Sarukkai’s appearance in Bali will be supported by five superb musicians:
  • Ms. Nandini Anand - Singer
  • Ms. S. Srilatha - Ensemble (Nattuvangam)
  • Mr. Nellai A. Balaji - Mridangam - percussion
  • Mr. Sai Shravanam - Tabla
  • Ms. Srilakshmi Venkataramani - Violin
Intense, extraordinary and luminous are terms used to describe the qualities that distinguish Malavika Sarukkai’s dancing. With her obvious artistic mastery and technique, she commands a presence on the world dance stage. She is acclaimed globally for her creative dance choreographies, which transport the viewer to the very heartbeat of dance, transporting the dancer and the audience beyond any specific geographies.

As a passionate and innovative trailblazing dancer from India, her collaborative productions have synergized dialogues with artists from different media – poets, musicians, painters, sculptors and contemporary writers. These interactions bring to her choreographic interpretations the incandescent beauty of the classical language and the energized articulation of a contemporary mind. As an artist and activist, with imagination and sensitivity, she draws inspiration from the world. Making her dance inseparable from life – recreating in her dance the vibrancy and beauty of nature; the joy and the despair of the human condition and the seeking of the spiritual.

Refined sensibilities and fine body intelligence have seen her emergence as a brilliant choreographer in Bharata Natyam, inventing a deeply compelling style of her own. She later consolidated this through a series of spellbinding and spiritually infused thematic performances. In doing so, she has contributed a large body of significant work to this solo form pushing the boundaries of the language of classical dance.

At the age of seven, motivated by her mother Saroja Kamakshi, Malavika Sarukkai began her studies in dance. She trained under Guru Kalyanasundaram of the Tanjavur School and Guru Rajaratnam of the Vazhuvoor School. She also studied Abhinaya (expressive dance) with Guru Kalanidhi Narayanan and the Odissi dance style with Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra and Guru Ramani Jena.

Her choreography is striking in that it strips away the decorative and the superficial and instead focuses on the essential. In the process, the dancing moment is imbued with a “living” quality. This exceptional quality champions the dance and not the dancer. Each performance by Malavika Sarukkai leaves the audience with unforgettable impressions of the dance. Moments that stay with them long after the concert is over.
