Indian Classical Dances
Indian Classical Dances
Description

From the Jacket:

India's rich cultural legacy has been founded on the abiding faith of the Indians in the divine power, whose worship had found expression through dance. 'Bhakti' or devotion was the underlying essence of the various dance forms that developed in India.

Indian Classical Dances is a unique presentation of the eight classical dance styles - Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Kathakali, Kuchipudi, Manipuri, Mohiniyattam, Odissi and Sattriya, through a concise portrayal of the background of each dance form, the salient features, format of presentation, music and costume. The simplistic approach of the narration coupled with the unique collection of photographs, will enable the lay reader to visualize, comprehend and appreciate the diverse dance forms of India.

About the Author:

Hailing from an illustrious family of freedom fighters, Shobhana Narayan is one of the foremost and renowned dancer 'par excellence', whose name has become synonymous with Kathak. Her individualistic, contemporary and dynamic choreography shows a unique blend of both the schools of this dance form. Her in-depth researches on the development of dance in general, and Kathak in particular, have found expression in many of her works and have received great acclaim.

Her creativity and contribution to the art has been admired and recognized through numerous awards including the Government of India President's awards the 'Padmashri' (1992) and the 'Sangeet Natak Akademi' Award' (1999-2000).

She is also a member of the Indian Audits and Accounts Service. She is married to Dr. Herbert Traxl (Austrian Ambassador) and has a son.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
