the glory of bharatanatyam
Aru Sri Art theatre will present 'Samprathayam', an exquisite
repertoire of traditional dance from the temple, produced and directed
by Dr Arunthathy Sri Ranganathan, founder of Aru Sri Art Theatre Sri
Lanka. This colorful evening which aims to celebrate the glory of
bharatanatyam will be held on October 30, 2015 at the Sree
Manikkapillayar Kalaiyarangam, Bambalapitiya, from 6.45 p.m. onwards.
Aru Sri Art Theater over the years has been able to staple the prints
of art in the hearts of both local and international audiences.
Productions of the Theater, such as Sri Ram, Sakunthala, Manimekala, and
Jai Ram have been appreciated widely for the perfection and quality of
dance. 'Samprathayam' is considered the leading event organized by the
Aru Sri Dance Theatre for 2015.
The production aims to showcase the beauty, authenticity and prestige
of traditional bharatanatyam as it was performed in temples in ancient
times. The producer holds the view that the portrayal would be an
effective attempt to appreciate and preserve this wonderful form of art
and portray it in its original form. Hence this is a great opportunity
to remind ourselves of the beauty of this conventional dance form, the
influence it has on contemporary societies and prevent its deterioration
in the height of modern dance trends.
