Delhi international arts fest

The Delhi International Arts Festival is on, this month of December in NCR, and they seem to be putting up some brilliant performances. As part of the series, they had a Bharatnatyam (by Geeta Chandran & Co) and a Kathak performance (by Prerna Shrimali) at the Epicenter here in Gurgaon - both were great.

This is the first time time I've seen light used to such effect in a Bharatnatyam performance. The most innovative bit was one titled 'seasons', based on Kalidasa's Ritusamhara and set to music by Tchaikovsky! - was seriously brilliant. This was my first look at a full Kathak performance as well and I came away quite impressed.
