Are these dance compositions sacred? Or profane?

Sringaram is a journey exploring some of the masterpieces called Javalis and Padams in contemporary times. They were short works performed at King's courts and for private audiences by the devadasis (community of dancing women) accompanied by musicians. Sometimes inspired by their own lives, these dancers explored different emotions of love through their dance, literature & music, laying emphasis on abhinaya (expressions) and improvisation.

Premiering at The Body Festival, Sringaram is a solo dance drama choreographed by Swaroopa Unni in Bharatanatyam - an Indian dance form. Music will include songs set in Carnatic style, which has been passed down
through generations and additional music composed by Sandeep Pillai, a renowned composer from India. Suitable
for a mature audience. Tickets are available at dashtickets and Door Sales.

Artist - Swaroopa Unni
