The month of Margazhi is turning out to be quite a star studded one this year as Bala Devi Chandrasekhar brings “Padmavati – an avatar” to Chennai. The first performance of this captivating show was held on 21st December at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Kilpauk.
“Padmavati- an avatar” is a solo operatic thematic production of a temple dancer, who is the centre of attraction in the immortal classic “Gita Govindam” by poet Jayadeva. Sringara Rasa, is the sensual thread of this love poem that is woven around Padmavati and Jayadeva. Whilst the union of Padmavati and Jayadeva is highly sublime and is held in high esteem and adoration by many, this presentation is juxtaposed with the amorous intimacy of Lord Krishna and Radha.
