The 36th Natya Kala Conference: Part 1 - Footloose and fancy free with Dr. Sunil Kothari

The 36th Natya Kala Conference in Chennai was inaugurated on 26th December 2016 at Sri Krishna Gana Sabha by Vyjayanthimala. The convener of the conference for current and next year is Dr. Srinidhi Chidambaram. She received the Nritya Choodamani award in 2000. She had performed at KGS when she was 11 and her association with Krishna Gana Sabha has been for more than 30 years. She shares her views about the theme of the conference Sthiti Gati - Bharatanatyam: constant, continuous. Sthiti implies a sense of stability, rootedness and being constant. Gati symbolises movement and progress. Bharatanatyam is ancient yet modern. Archaic, yet alive. Traditional, yet an art form of today.
