Leading Odissi exponent Sharmila Mukerjee and her dance ensemble Sanjali will present ‘Hansika’ – the first Odissi adaptation of the widely acclaimed Russian Ballet ‘Swan Lake’ on Saturday, 31st March 2018 at Chowdiah Memorial Hall, Malleshwaram at 6.30PM.
With an ensemble of 25 artistes, Hansika showcases a western classical theme through an Indian classical dance form. ‘Hansika’ presents a compelling tale of romance and deception through an Odissi dance drama. It’s an intimate portrait of a love affair between Prince Siegfried and Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorceress.The graceful movements and elegant postures seen in the Russian ballet will be recreated in Hansika through fluidic Odissi movements. The sculpturesque poses and intricate footwork in Odissi lends itself naturally into the fabric of ballet. The stage design, costumes and the music has been meticulously created to capture the essence of the original composition. Music for Hansika has been composed by music director and composer Praveen D Rao
Known for her choice of fresh and unconventional themes, Hansika is yet another pioneering effort from Sharmila Mukerjee to go beyond the traditional repertoire. Her love for the offbeat is evident in her past productions that have beautifully portrayed distinctive themes through the threads of Odissi.
Hansika will be staged on Saturday, 31st March 2018 at Chowdiah Memorial Hall. Hansika by Sanjali Centre for Odissi Dance is supported by Rotary Club of Bangalore and C. Krishniah Chetty & Sons as a fund raiser for Rotary Bangalore Vidyalaya.
