She brings classical remoteness near the heart...

A nayika enticing her beloved she can be devastating in unleashing her charms. In pure dance numbers, Shantha with her stage presence weaves a web of magic, dancing in an effortless manner.

Kuchipudi dancers may occasionally lack grace and finesse. Not so Shantha… in spite of all the globalised exposure her Kuchipudi still has the indigenous flavour… Shantha’s penchant for abhinaya had its finest moments in the Annamachariya’s composition.

SRI Honouring Warrior Women Past and Present

Historically, women have ingeniously pushed boundaries to achieve their goals, often for society’s greater good. Today’s women are no different – like the female heroes who stepped up during the worst of the Covid 19 pandemic and those who continue to soldier on.
SPARKS will pay tribute to the unstinting courage of today’s women who fought the Covid 19 pandemic on several fronts. Through dance, we express their varied experiences, emotions and moods in the vortex of the pandemic. This modern tale will play out with a dialogue between Malay and Indian dance disciplines – a venture that will push known boundaries and open new vistas; under the mentorship of Shantha Ratii, who has 4 decades of experience and exposure across the globe in performance, choreography and teaching. Watch as we pay tribute to all those courageous women through dance.
