Sadhana - A Mohiniyattam Recital

  • This event has passed.





Description:  A lecture demonstration and performance on Mohiniyattam that delves into the aesthetics of the artform, its literature and movement vocabulary. This demonstration will give you an understanding of the essence of Mohiniyattam; on how movement, hand gestures and abhinaya become the predominant tools for communication. It will aim at explaining the language of Mohiniyattam which will enable you to further watch and enjoy the aesthetics of this fluid and graceful artform.

About the series: Baithak has been conceptualized and envisioned to create a non-stage forum centred around arts that will engage, listen and speak with the audience. They can range from beginning a dialogue on relevant issues around us, to simply soaking in the creative churning of an art form!
