Bharatanatyam, one of India’s most profound classical arts, is being reinterpreted, renewed, and invigorated by choreographer Malavika Sarukkai. This film by Sumantra Ghosal, a collaborator for Sarukkai’s Thari—The Loom, explores bharatanatyam through the artist, showcasing her work with the hallowed, and often unforgiving, tradition. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Malavika Sarukkai and moderator Chandrika Tandon.
