Parampara Festival

August 7th, 8th, 15th, 16th

Natya Dance Theatre presents the Parampara Festival. A four-day multifaceted event with performances, workshops, and panel discussions from world renowned dancers and teachers. This festival explores the lineage of Bharatanatyam’s solo format.  Events highlight the contributions of six Master Teachers and their students, examining how dance traditions attend to the legacy of the past as they evolve into us into the future.  How do you support the new age of dancers? What is Parampara? How do we pass on this art and each bani’s legacy?

Katherine Kunhiraman, Ratna Kumar, Ramya Harishankar, Mythili Kumar, Lata Pada and Hema Rajagopalan teach workshops, perform solo presentations and showcase some of their senior dancers.
