Aditi's enacting of Meera Bhajan captivates

Shivoham Institute of Performing Arts presented the debut Bharatanatyam performance of Aditi Guruprasad at Mysore Association auditorium. The performance was noteworthy for its considerable command over technique and expressional dancing.

The Shivoham Institute is headed by accomplished Bharatanatyam exponents Guru Nilesh Singha and Mubina. Functioning for more than a decade, Shivoham has trained several aspirants in the field of Bharatanatyam. Nilesh and Mubina have also performed at several prestigious festivals, both in India and abroad and are also known for their choreographic work.

The charming dansuese commenced the performance with the traditional invocatory numbers, in praise of the presiding deities of Indian classical dances, followed with other numbers that introduces the audience to the technique of Bharatanatyam. After the elaborate 'varnam', Aditi won the hearts of the spectators with the rendering of the Meera Bhajan that incorporates the game of dice and the scene of Draupadii. Aditi has a natural flair for 'abhinaya' and dramatisation. The pleasant surprise of the evening was the number on Lord Ayyappa, which was well appreciated by the audience. Aditi could further refurbish her style, with more stress towards technique and presentation. She  concluded with the rhythmic Thillana.

Aditi recieved fine orchestral support from Guru Nilesh and Mubina for 'nattuvangam', Dr Saumya for commendable vocal rendering, mridangam by K G Vishwanath` violin by Seshadiri, flute by Krishnan, moorsing by Shivanand and ghatam by Shankar. A promising dancer indeed.
