The dancer did not shy away from performing in complete silence at times - refreshing but all too rare in the contemporary classical dance scenario.
...seated on the floor, the dancer conveyed the wrenching lyrics with almost no mudras. It was a triumph of abhinaya, and of the seamless blending of dance, lighting and music.
