This exotic find had to be shared. The six-part video brings out the phenomenon that Kalakshetra was when the legendary Rukmani Arundale walked its campus in 1984. Weaving dance, music and narration, the video engages even an outsider to the Indian classical dance form. It also captures the essence of the new Chennai and old Madras. The visuals also infuse the viewer with a yearning to learn more about the dance. It is one of those videos that does not mystify the dance form but unravels it with a rare philosophical touch.
And guess who else features in the video? Actor Amala Akineni during her student days at Kalakshetra.

THIS IS a 6 part  series uploaded in youtube on KALASHETRA,S contribution to Bharatnatyam.

Please watch.
