Event Description : Celebrating one of the most recognized dances of India – Bharata Natyam, Divinity Series, in its maiden event, will endeavor to recreate the classical integrity of this temple dance form. Presenting three contemporary artistes Rama Vaidyanathan from New Delhi, Meenakshi Srinivasan from Chennai and Mythili Prakash from Los Angeles, each of the performances will be preceded by a short recital of specially composed invocatory music by members of the much acclaimed Gandharva Choir.

Conceptualized and organized by industry veteran Deepak Shourie and notable Bharata Natyam dancer and choreographer Jyotsna Shourie, Divinity Series seeks to create a new generation of cultural connoisseurs by offering an authentic celestial experience of the art form to fresh and diverse audiences.

About the performers : 

Rama Vaidyanathan is a leading exponent of Bharata Natyam, a popular classical dance form of India. She is undoubtedly one of the most sought after artistes of her generation having carved a name for herself in the Bharata Natyam world. She has trained intensively under the legendary dancer Yamini Krishnamurthy and the renowned Guru Saroja Vaidyanathan. Everyone who has seen Rama perform is struck by her unique thought process and fresh approach to dance. While deeply rooted in tradition, she has evolved her own individual style without forsaking the core principles of Bharata Natyam. She brings to her dance a rare sense of devotion and dedication, which leaves the audience with a sense of spiritual fulfillment.

Meenakshi Srinivasan has studied Bharata Natyam under Smt. Alarmel Valli. She has been awarded the Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar for 2011 by Sangeet Natak Akademi.
Meenakshi’s individual approach, technique and creativity are characterized by a distinctive sensuous geometry. As quoted by the press she is, “a dancer who embodies both sensitive and playful qualities through a dynamic presence on stage.” As a consummate artist, Meenakshi’s ability is versatile with both the purity and sanctity of the traditional repertoire as well as her own individual skill and approach to contemporary themes using the language of Bharata Natyam. Her strength relies on her ability to co-relate the different disciplines of the art and she has worked with various artists – composers, musicians, scholars and writers on new choreographic works.

Mythili Prakash is recognized as one of the world’s leading young exponents of Bharata Natyam - the classical dance of South India. Her classical, yet inventive approach to Bharata Natyam revitalizes the physicality, musicality and expressive theatricality of the dance to create an exceptional style that is distinct and meaningful to audiences across the world. 
Mythili’s command of the art form is evident whether you are an aficionado or new to Indian classical dance. The elegant and sculpted chiseled lines of her dance are an irrepressible force of precision and dynamism. Her magnetism on stage and her choreography, both in the vibrant, rhythmic athleticism, and the sensitive, nuanced expressive element of the form, are compelling. Mythili uses traditional repertoire while extending the technique to create new structures connecting her extraordinarily rich and intense style with a sharp contemporary intellect.
