“Only Until the Light Fades”. Bharatanatyam dancer & contemporary poet Team up.

July 31, 2017

Bhoomija presents “Only Until the Light Fades”. Bharatanatyam dancer Alarmel Valli teams up with leading contemporary poet Arundhathi Subramaniam,

Renowned Bharatanatyam dancer Alarmel Valli and Arundhathi Subramaniam, together for a magnificent piece that sets into dance love poems from the Sangam age to today. The danseuse and the poet take turns to enrich the performance with narratives about the carefully chosen poems, exquisitely choreographed by Alarmel Valli.

Drawing on love poetry down the ages, the production journeys from ancient Tamil Sangam poetry to the 15th century Telugu padams to the self-aware female love poems of contemporary times. In the process, the production reminds us of the many ways in which love reinvents itself, finding its own creative strategies to stay timeless and topical.

The live orchestra is brought up by:
Nattuvangam: Jayashree Ramanathan, Vocal: Vasudha Ravi, Violin: K P Nandini, Mridangam: Sriganesh Ramamoorthy and Flute: J B Srutisagar. Murugan Krishnan is on the Lights.

Tickets are priced at Rs.300 and available on
Subject to availability, they can be picked up at the venue on the day of the show too.
