Bharata Kalanjali presents the second edition of ‘Jharna’ at Taramani, Chennai


Bharata Kalanjali presents the second edition of ‘Jharna’ – A festival dedicated to the arts, will be held between March 3-5,2023 and March 10-12, 2023

After the successful first edition of Jharna held in March 2022, Bharata Kalanjali is happy to announce that the second edition of Jharna, a festival dedicated to the arts, will be held between March 3-5,2023 and March 10-12, 2023.

The festival was born from the desire to provide a stage for upcoming artists. It also serves the dual purpose of hosting a Live audience to experience the art intimately while at the same time taking the art and spirit to a global audience.

We take pride in the fact that the festival’s debut gave many up-and-coming artists a platform and opened doors for them. We have also received multiple enquiries from abroad to conduct Jharna under the Bharata Kalanjali banner.

After a rigorous selection process, 9 exceptional dancers have been shortlisted from 88 applicants. These Bharatanaatyam dancers will explore and experiment with choreography around a theme that will be guided by the institution. Dancers will ideate, conceptualise and create fresh work that is both engaging and inspiring. The participants will go through the entire creative process of moulding a new piece of art from scratch, under the guidance of our esteemed panel of gurus at Bharata Kalanjali.

Spanning over two weekends the festival will also host a special music concert.

This festival is dedicated to the arts community and seeks to provide a stage for those who could not step onto one over the pandemic. It is an attempt to savour art in its true essence while giving talented artists a platform to showcase their art.
