      EVENT DETAILS
      MARGAM

      The Bharatnatyam performance, also known as a Margam, is a repertoire of pieces traditionally structured with the intent of taking the audience through a journey of Rasa. Margam is a concept, a framework, or one can say it is a well-thought-of plan to approach any Bharatanatyam recital. With the increase of thematic presentations and group productions (which are a great step forward in the future of the art culture), a solo Margam has become an uncommon experience for audiences specially in the West. It is my hope to continue to bring this experience to the audience out of India. The Margam is relative and subjective, flexible enough to incorporate a variety of dance compositions set in the Bharatanatyam movement vocabulary. A Margam typically consists of an invocatory piece, a central piece, abhinaya pieces and a culminating piece. Nitya will be presenting a carefully curated traditional repertoire of Bharatanatyam pieces set to the traditional Margam format.
