Dancing the Gods: Amrita Lahiri
Dancing the Gods is World Music Institute's annual Indian Classical Dance Festival. Amrita Lahiri is widely recognized as one of the leading young performers of Kuchipudi today. Kuchipudi, an Indian classical dance form, has a lightness and dramatic quality that sets it apart from other styles. Amrita performs Kuchipudi from its traditional origins to its contemporary forms -- she presents the beauty and joy of dance while maintaining the precision and soul of the Kuchipudi style, by combining the grace and light-footedness of Kuchipudi with a focus on depth of emotion and attention to aesthetics of movement, music, and content, for an altogether refined approach. Her dance performances and choreographies have been acclaimed for their elegance and dynamism. Amrita will perform the US premiere of Murchhana - The Spirit of Sangeet, which she created under the mentorship of Sharmila Biswas. She will be accompanied by live music. Your ticket to this show at New York's Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Symphony Space will also include a pre-show lecture and demo with co-curator Rajika Puri, along with a post-show "Chat & Chai" reception with the performers.
