eX-Tradition (A Showcase) - Synopsis
60 mins, 2000
A presentation of new solos and excerpts from full-evening works, developed over the last 3 years,
by Anita Ratnam & Arangham Dance Ensemble.
Senior members of the Arangham Dance Ensemble showcase a series of dances that uses
TRADITION as building blocks, surrendering to a new construct. After delighting in the
representation that Bharatanatyam offers, Anita and members of the Arangham Dance Ensemble
have sought with equal enthusiasm the modern statement which allows for contemporary
expression of personal experience and conviction.
eX-TRADITION allows the joy and vitality of the art communicate itself to any audience, and offers
a glimpse into the rich and complex repertoire that Arangham has been building over the years.
