Inspiring PMB with Kuchipudi dance

2008-10-23 00:00

Sandeep Bodhanker, an internationally renowned Kuchipudi dance artist, will be in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday at 4 pm. He will perform in the parking lot of Nedbank in Raisethorpe. The performance is hosted by the Sahaja Yoga Meditation group.

Based in the United Kingdom, Bodhanker wants to promote the unique classical Indian dance style of Kuchipudi, which comes from northern India. It is his mission not only to preserve the tradition of Kuchipudi, but also to demonstrate to the world the incredible dynamism, inspiring spiritual aspect and immense beauty of the dance.

Bodhanker has been honoured by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco), for his outstanding performances and for his extraordinary contribution to the promotion, preservation and popularisation of the heritage of Indian performing arts.

Bodhanker will also be performing at Diwali programmes in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town. For more information, phone Michael at 079 778 5535, Kamlan or Visa at 033 387 8720, or Preben at 082 467 1486.
