Aditi's pleasing recital

Wednesday, December 20, 2017
By Vijay Shanker

Shivoham Institute of Performing Arts presented the Bharatanatyam recital by Aditi Guruprasad at the Shivali Festival, organised by the Shivali Society of India at the Mysore Association Auditorium. The recital was noteworthy for the considerable command over technique and expressional dancing.

Aditi Guruprasad is the disciple of accomplished Bharatanatyam exponents Guru Nilesh Singha and Mubina Barve who head the Shivoham Institute of Performing Arts that has been functioning for more than a decade, with some of the dancers also having become professionals. Blessed with a charming personality, Aditi commenced with the invocatory numbers and then proceeded on to perform the traditional 'Alarippu' with ease and precision.

Besides the number on the Goddess Menakshi, Aditi performed the piece-de-resistance of the evening , the most elaborate number 'Varnam' that incorporated Lord Shiva and the episode when the teenaged boy Markandeya is about to be taken away by Lord Yama, but his steadfast devotion for Lord Shiva saves him when the Lord appears and stops Yama from taking him away. Aditi's attempt was sincere but with more involvement, she could have delivered a better performance.

While the Meera Bhajan revealed the devotion of the saint-poetess towards Lord Krishna, the dramatic scene of 'Druapadi Vastraharnam' was also enacted, wherein Lord Krishna is the savior and protector of Meera. Aditi concluded the performance with the intricate 'Dhanasri Thillana'. With more 'sadhakam', Aditi can definitely perform better.
