Event Description : 
 
DANCE : Kathak Manch Pravesh of Dhriti Swarup

Manch Pravesh, will showcase performance by Dhriti of a ‘stuti’ or an invocation to the lord to help her in her recital and in her future endeavours.

The next abhinaya ‘gaagarnabharandet’, a composition by Dr Shovana Narayan, depicts Krishna’s mischievous antics. Krishna follows Radha to the well and playfully blocks her path. He pulls her closer, so she cannot fill her Matki until she pushes him away. She runs to Yashoda complaining about the frivolous exploits of her dear son. The villagers ask Yashoda why she doesn’t stop her son, but she smiles at them knowing that she could never have the heart to reprimand Krishna.

This is then followed by Dhamaar- a taal consisting of 14 matras a routine of thaat, aamad, tukdas, and footwork which shows Dhriti’s mastery of the technical aspect of kathak.

In the Nandkumaarashtakam, Dhriti then depicts, the paragon of beauty, Radha, as she searches for her beloved. Krishna rises, decked in flowers, and embodies the name pitambar – the one clothed in yellow. On the day of worshipping Indra, Radha and her friends prepare for the festivities until Krishna suggests that they worship the Govardhan Parvat instead. Infuriated, Indra orders destruction on the villagers. They watch, astounded, as Krishna leans forward towards the mountain and lifts it atop his little finger. Indra falls at his feet, realizing the true glory of Krishna’s power.

In conclusion, Dhriti will perform the Ashtamangal taal- consisting of 11 matras- from thaat to tukdas and intricate footwork in which she strives to exhibit her command over the nuances which define a true kathak exponent.

The Manch Pravesh will be followed by the launch of a book- ‘Karana- A Kathak Perspective’ in which Dhriti has tried to interpret, under the guidance of her guru, the 108 Karanas of the Natyashastra, an ancient treatise on the performing arts written by Bharat Muni between approximately 55bce to 500ce.

The book invites anyone interested in dance to experience the karanas and their interpretation through the eyes of a kathak dancer. a visual treat of photographs and links to videos supported by simple text and Sanskrit translations make the book easy to understand for everyone. it presents a tiny window to an ocean of knowledge.

Dhriti started her training in kathak as a little girl of seven, under Guru TirathAjmani, who is Shovana ji’s Guru-Bhai. Even at this tender age, she had a mind of her own, choosing kathak over Bollywood dance. 

Dhriti has been trained to be a highly proficient dancer replete with technical and abhinaya skills and an intense grounding in the theory of kathak. A staunch believer in guru-shishya parampara Shovana ji, has inculcated in Dhriti her own sensitivities of righteous practice and trust. Under her expert guidance and after 9 years of intense riyaaz, she is to perform her kathak ‘Manch Pravesh’ as she steps into the world of dance.


Currently, a student of class 12 in G.D. Goenka Public School, Vasant Kunj, Dhriti finds herself involved in photography, social service, and Indian classical vocal music. while being passionate about dance, she aspires to pursue economics as she crosses the threshold of childhood into the real world.
