Am back once again with “Annual Natya Festival – Season XX”.
My driving force is the love of my art. I have had a million reasons not to embark on this but one reason to carry on and that is to bring together the richness of art through the expressions of various artists. It is indeed a visual treat to watch the graceful dancers.
If it isn’t Ghantasala Samarpanam then it is the Natya Festival where I join hands with many beautiful and prolific artists to enthrall you with performances. So friends, this year I have a special treat for all of you. I complete 40 years of dancing and I want to share the joy and success with all of you. I am because of my associations.
The Kala Pradarshini Natya festival begins on 18th January and will go on till the 22nd January. This year’s festival too has a lineup of prolific artists from
Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi and Mohiniattam. It’s a fitting platform for amateurs and a
pleasant experience for the exponents.
Yes my struggles with sponsorship continue. Sponsors we still depend on your generosity to help us bring more valuable programs to the fore.
The ball must be kept rolling and I want to come back with more scintillating performances and soul stirring experiences. The only way I can do this is with your support. We have been very fortunate to have sponsors who have backed us for years but as times change and demands on art change, the money is hard to come by and so I must reinvent myself to blend with time.
This Natya season I have a lot of young dancers performing. I am hoping that their fluidity and enthusiasm will be contagious. I hope to see you all at the Natya Festival. More surprises in store for those gracing the Natya Festival.
Love & regards
Parvathi Ravi Ghantasala
