36th year Art festival 2010 - 28th December, 2010
Vaishnavi Sainath disciple and daughter of Smt. Rajeshwari Sainath presented a special item in praise of Goddess of Madurai Meenakshi. Her Nritta was good and Adavus were neat. The Swara pattern were well choreographed and Smt. Rajeshwari Sainath conducted the recital. The different stories depicting the birth of Meenakshi, her dikhvijayam and the use of martial arts in dance was good. The Meenakshi Kalyanam was the highlight.
Vaishnavi did a Thillana in Surya Ragam followed by Abang in praise of Vitalapanduranga.
The whole dance was well presented.
Neat Thyaga Rahasyam
Smt. Roja Kannan presented Thyaga Rahasyam as a thematic presentation. The concept, research and dialogue by S. Jayachandran was well conceived. Search of the blue lotus was the concept and story of Manornmani was dealt in detail.
The Thiruvaroor Thygagaraja temple, its Ajaba Natanam, its chariot procession and significance of the cloth were touched upon with subtlety. Roja presented the whole theme with dignity and grace. The orchestra support added strength to the production.
