Vanashree Rama Rao’s emergence as choreographer - Footloose and fancy free with Dr. Sunil Kothari

The title of the performance at IIC Fountain Lawns, presented by India International Centre, supported by Takshila Education Society was ‘Timeless tales of Gods and Goddesses, Men and Demons, Love and Devotion’, conceived and choreographed by Kuchipudi dancer Vanashree Rama Rao. It was a compact and thoroughly well rehearsed presentation performed by professional dancers from three different streams of Indian classical dance - Mayurbhanj Chhau, Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi. The teamwork was exemplary with vocals by K. Venkatesh, Dr. S. Vasudevan, flute by Rajat Prasanna, violin by Master Raghavendra and percussion instruments by R. Keshavan who handled mridangam, tabla, pakhavaj, khol, and kanjira for dramatic effect. Nattuvangam was by Dr. S. Vasudevan. The music was recorded.
