Shankarananda Kalakshetra, in collaboration with the Department of Culture, Government of Telangana, and Dr Usha Rk , brings to Hyderabad, the much acclaimed Divya series conceptualised and curated by well known arts consultant and arts administrator, Dr Usha Rk
The program titled DIVYA TREIYAM , explores Divine concepts through Bharatanatyam.
Divya Treiyam looks at the divine resonances, attributes, vehicles and flowers, that define worship of the Divine
In Hinduism, Divinity or the Gods and Goddesses are often identified by their attributes, their vehicles, their weapons, the flowers they love, the colours they wear, the hand gestures
they use, the musical instruments they play, etc.
Dr Usha Rk conceptualised this idea and program - the Divya Trilogy , as an ongoing endeavour to introduce our
young dancers to an in depth understanding of some of these concepts - of Divya Pushpa , Divya Astra, and Divya Vahana
6 young dancers from Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi will be presenting specially created individual presentations of 20 minutes, each on any one aspect.
Each presentation is deeply researched, and unique, and brings to the fore through the idiom of Bharatanatyam, ideas that permeate the worlds of the Puranas, Poetry and Prayer
