Studio of the classic Indian dance "The Magic Flute" and Alina Mironova will represent the northern direction - Kathak.
Bharatnatyam (bha - "bhava", feelings, emotions; ra - "raga" - melody, that - "talam" - the art of rhythm, natyam - dance) - a type of theatrical dance originated in South India, in the state of Tamil Nadu 4,000 years ago. Is one of the classic styles of Indian dance.
Originally had a sacred significance, as evidenced by the various poses of Bharatanatyamy carved on the walls of temples in South India. It was performed by temple dancers - devadasi, who started learning to dance at the age of 3 and played no less important role than the priests. Plots of dance compositions were legends about the deity, in whose honor the temple was built, describing his exploits in the fight against demons. It was believed that all events in the dance are experienced again in reality, so the outcome of the battle depended on the dancer's skill: for the victory of the deity she had to perform her dance impeccably.
The technique of performing modern bharatanatyam includes 9 positions / moods (love, disgust, heroism, fear, joy, sadness, surprise, anger and peace), transmitted through body movements, facial expressions and gestures. A distinctive feature of the modern style is the underlined geometry of poses, the symmetry of the dance pattern, sharp, precise and clear movements and deliberate conventionality of facial expressions and gestures.
The kathak dance form originated in Northern India, in Uttar Pradesh. Its first performers were temple narrators, who illustrated the mythological episodes with gestures and dances.
In the era of the Great Mogul kathak, becoming a court dance, was enriched with new elements, in particular - with complex rhythms. As a result, Kathak united the Hindu temple traditions and traditions of the Muslim court.
