Indian classical dance-drama Bharata Natyam style.

Bharata Natyam is the classical Indian dance par excellence. Once upon a time it was performed in temples by holy dancers, the devadasi, who were brought up and instructed in the arts and music solely for this purpose. Having fallen into disfavour due to Victorian censorship at the time of the British dominion, this love poetry has had its cultural and artistic prestige restored in modern times. There are different schools of styles of Bharata Natyam, the one offered here belongs to the purest tradition of Madras, the capital of Tamil Nadu, cradle of Bharata Natyam. According to tradition, the performance alternates moments of pure dance (Alarippu, Jatiswaram, Tillana) with others of acted dance (Padam, Shabdam and above all Varnam). As customary, the executed passages are briefly outlined before their performance.
