Eight years of choreography culminates in a dance performance accompanied by live music on July 3, 2016 at the Painted Bride Art Center. “samAni” will revisit old favorites from the Three Aksha repertoire of Bharatanatyam and other Indian classical and contemporary dance. Live musicians from India will join the company, along with special guest artists Prasanna Kasturi and Samanvitha Kasturi from St. Louis, MO — making this an evening of live performances not to be missed.
Three Aksha dance company members bring to life dance pieces that blend whimsy and historical storytelling. This evening-length performance features over 30 trained dancers who have worked under the guidance of Choreographer and Artistic Director Viji Rao.
Additionally, special guest artists Prasanna Kasturi and Samanvitha Kasturi from St. Louis, MO will perform Katak as part of samAni.
Three Aksha aims to increase appreciation and audience attendance for traditional Indian art in Philadelphia. They aim to build a greater understanding of the arts by presenting high quality dance presentations and educational programs, such as this dance presentation.
A sincere thank you to Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Three Aksha for making this performance possible.
