Sammilan 2009, Bangalore.
I was fortunate enough to witness this year's breath-taking International Festival presented by Kalari Academy of Performing Arts. It was just yesterday. I was too exhausted out of my wits to write about last night.
Why? I was trigger-happy. What more can a photographer ask for than picture-perfect, elegant and beautiful artists!?
I agree it spilt over a little than the scheduled time lines. But, do we ever say no to extra food on a treat? No. :)
For those of you who missed it, what am I for? Here you go, the outline of the show. Pardon me if I miss out anything but that would be only because I'm in the hurry to cover the event in a single breath.
The thrilling Theekshana choreographed by respected Ranjan sir (my guru) where the live music got people biting their lips in anxiety. A glimpse...
Roopa Ravindran from Sristi choreographed beautiful sequence presenting all Animal Poses in a engaging way to promote preservation of wildlife.
Veena, sleek and swift Veena; choreographed a Musical Combat, which by the way is my brand new favorite now with the magical combination of soft instrumental in the background of a masculine strength portrayal. Check that out!
Maja.. The Koresian Ballet artist.. Who captured the audience with her perfect balance and immense focus. Don't miss her toes. Straight as Stick!! :O
Veena's Maya.. Can you stop admiring her poise!
Oh and how can I miss, Kannada Actress Bhavana was there as the chief guest. She looked stunning in the black sari and the knotty (naughty ;)) little blouse.
