Rajika Puri and Dancers performed at the Joyce Soho in downtown Manhattan a while ago. Rajika studied Bharatanatyam with Sikkil Guru Ramaswamy Pillai, her Odissi Gurukul is Deba Prasad Das
The program titled Conversations with Shiva was Rajika’s continued experiments in Bharatanatyam or what she calls Bharatanatyam Unwrapped. I got to see the technical rehearsal and then a performance a few days later.
Here is a set of pictures I took.
For the technically inclined this was shot on a Nikon D200 with a Nikkor 28mm f2.8 film lens. The images were developed in Adobe Lightroom.
