Dance for Devotion
For those who would like to watch something a bit different and are in the mood for a dance show, head down to the NCPA Umang Series. Sattriya is a rare art form from Assam which has recently been given a classical dance status. As part of the Umang series at NCPA, there’s a Sattriya dance show by Anwesa Mahanta. A unique vocabulary has been coined especially for the grammar and the angika abhinaya aspects of the dance such as gates, stance and body movements.
Performer Anwesa has been trained in Bharatanatyam at Indira PP Bora and Sattriya Dance at Bayanacharya Ghanakanta Bora and has performed at prestigious events and festivals across the country. From the Asia Pacific Performing Arts Network symposium to the India Habitat Center and more, she now dances her way down to NCPA for a show which promises to be worth a look.
