Event Description:
(Sara Baur-Harding / 2011 / USA, India / 78 minutes / English)

An intimate portrait of Bharati Shivaji and Vijayalakshmi, mother and daughter masters of Mohiniyattam dance. Shivaji is credited with reconstructing the classical Indian dance form, while her daughter Vijayalakshmi has advanced the dance form by continually challenging tradition through the unconventional use of multicultural music and innovative choreographies. This film documents the creative collaboration of these determined and graceful women. Screening to be accompanied by a performance from Vijayalakshmi.  Discussion to follow. 

"Vijayalakshmi’s Mohiniyattam is delightful with delicate movements, deep torso inflections and soft undulations. Though the femininity and grace are generic to the dance style, Vijayalakshmi (daughter and disciple of eminent dancer Bharati Shivaji) adds charm to the movement vocabulary with her vivacious nature and expressive eyes." (The Hindu)

"Encapsulates the vision and missionary zeal of the world renowned exponents of Mohiniyattam, Bharati Shivaji and daughter Vijayalakshmi." (South Asia Mail)
