Bharatnatyam
  • Bharatnatyam originated in Tamil Nadu and the
    word Bharatnatyam is derived from the word
    "Bharata" and thus associated with the
    Natyashastra. Though the style of Bharatnatyam is
    over two thousand years old, the freshness and
    richness of its essence has been retained even
    today. The technique of human movement which
    Bharatnatyam follows can be traced back to the
    fifth Century A.D. from sculptural evidence. This
    classical dance has a mesmerizing effect as it
    uplifts the dancer and the beholder to a higher
    level of spiritual consciousness. It is a dancing
    style that comprises of Bhava, Raga, Tala, and
    Natya which reflect the real meaning of
    Bharatnatyam.

7
About Bharatnatyam
  • The origin and tradition of Bharatnatyam is
    appealing and enlightening. This dance form was
    nurtured in the temple by the Devadasis, servants
    of the God. It was taken to the princely courts
    and the Chola and the Pallava kings were believed
    to be the great patrons of this art. The
    contributions of the South Indian saint-poets and
    musicians cannot be ignored. Bhakti or devotional
    cult was infused into the tradition by these
    poets. The literary content of Bharatnatyam was
    provided by them and their musical compositions
    determined the repertoire of this dance form.

8
History Of Bharatnatyam
  • The theoretical foundations of Bharatanatyam are
    found in Natya Shastra, the ancient Hindu text of
    performance arts. Natya Shastra is attributed to
    the ancient scholar Bharata Muni, and its first
    complete compilation is dated to between 200 BCE
    and 200 CE, but estimates vary between 500 BCE
    and 500 CE. The most studied version of the Natya
    Shastra text consists of about 6000 verses
    structured into 36 chapters. The text, states
    Natalia Lidova, describes the theory of Tandava
    dance (Shiva), the theory of rasa, of bhava,
    expression, gestures, acting techniques, basic
    steps, standing postures all of which are part
    of Indian classical dances. Dance and performance
    arts, states this ancient text, are a form of
    expression of spiritual ideas, virtues and the
    essence of scriptures.

Sybolism Of bharatnatyam
  • The solo or the sadir nritya is the direct
    descendant of this tradition. Besides the rich
    history of Bharatnatyam, another mythological
    tale is also attached to the origin of this
    dance. It is believed that Goddess Parvati taught
    this dance form to Usha, daughter of Banasura, a
    demon. Usha taught the same to the Gopikas of the
    city of Dwaraka, birth place of Lord Krishna.
    This is how the spiritual dance form Bharatnatyam
    was introduced to mankind.

10
Mohiniyattam
  • Mohiniyattam is a traditional South Indian dance
    from Kerala. The credit for reviving the
    Mohiniyattam dance in the nineteenth century goes
    to the Tamil nattuvanar (dance master) Vadivelu,
    one of the Thanjavur Quartet and Swathi Thirunal.
    He was an enlightened ruler of Travancore
    (Southern Kerala) and promoted the study of
    Mohiniyattam. Swati Tirunal composed many of the
    music arrangements and vocal accompaniments that
    provide musical background for the Mohiniyattam
    dancers. The noted Malayalam poet Vallathol, who
    established the Kerala Kalamandalam dance school
    in 1930, played an important role in reviving the
    Mohiniyattam dance form.

12
History of mohiniyattam
  • In the second story Vishnu appears as Mohini to
    save Lord Shiva from the demon Bhasmasura. The
    name Mohiniyattam may have been coined after Lord
    Vishnu the main theme of the dance is love and
    devotion to God, with usually Vishnu or Krishna
    being the hero. Devadasis used to perform this in
    temples. It also has elements of Koothu and
    Kottiyattom. Mohiniyattam is a drama in dance and
    verse.The dance involves the swaying of broad
    hips and the gentle movements of erect posture
    from side to side. This is reminiscent of the
    swinging of the palm leaves and the gently
    flowing rivers which abound Kerala, the land of
    Mohiniyattam.

13
Symbolism of mohiniyattam
  • It is one of the eight Indian classical dance
    forms. It is considered a very graceful dance
    meant to be performed as a solo recital by women.
    The term Mohiniyattam comes from the words
    "Mohini" meaning a woman who enchants onlookers
    and "aattam" meaning graceful and sensuous body
    movements. The word "Mohiniyattam" literally
    means "dance of the enchantress". There are two
    stories of the Lord Vishnu disguised as a Mohini.
    In one, he appears as Mohini to lure the asuras
    (demons) away from the amrita (nectar of
    immortality) obtained during the churning of the
    palazhi or Ocean of Milk

14
Kuchipudi
  • The Kuchipudi performance usually begins with an
    invocation. Then, each costumed actor is
    introduced, their role stated, and who then
    performs a short dance prelim to music (dharavu).
    Next, the performance presents pure dance
    (nritta).This is followed with expressive part of
    the performance (nritya), where rhythmic gestures
    as a sign language mime the play. Vocalists and
    musicians accompany the artist, with the song
    recited in Telugu language, and the tala and raga
    set to (Carnatic music).The typical musical
    instruments in Kuchipudi are mridangam, cymbals,
    veena, flute and the tambura.

15
About Kuchipudi
  • Kuchipudi is one of the eight major Indian
    classical dances. It originated in a village
    named Krishna district in the Indian state of
    Andhra Pradesh.Kuchipudi is a dance-drama
    performance art, with its roots in the ancient
    Hindu Sanskrit text of Natya Shastra. It
    developed as a religious art linked to traveling
    bards, temples and spiritual beliefs, like all
    major classical dances of India.Evidence of
    Kuchipudi's existence in an older version are
    found in copper inscriptions of the 10th 15th
    century such as the Machupalli Kaifat.

16
History of kuchipudi
  • Kuchipudi, like other classical dance forms in
    India, traces its roots to the Natya Shastra, a
    foundational treatise on the performing arts
    attributed to the ancient scholar Bharata Muni.
    Its first complete compilation is dated to
    between 200 BCE and 200 CE, but estimates vary
    between 500 BCE and 500 CE. The most studied
    version of the Natya Shastra text consists of
    about 6000 verses structured into 36 chapters.

17
Symbolism of kuchipudi
  • Kuchipudi is a team performance, with roots in
    Hindu religious festivals. The drama-dance
    involves extensive stage movements and exacting
    footwork, wherein the underlying drama is mimed
    by expressive gestures of hand (mudras), eye and
    face movements.The expressive style is through a
    sign language that follows the classical
    pan-Indian Sanskrit texts such as Natya Shastra,
    Abhinaya Darpana and Nrityararnavali.The dance is
    accompanied with Carnatic music, while the
    recital is in Telugu language.Just like the
    Carnatic music style, Kuchipudi shares many
    postures and expressive gestures with
    Bharatanatyam, such as the Ardhamandali (half
    seating position or a partial squat, legs bent or
    knees flexed out).
