Venue: University Cultural Centre

Advaith is an experimental and exploratory work on the concept of ‘non-dualism’. Featuring two different dance styles, Bharatanatyam and Kathak, in a rarely-explored concept, we will delve into the underlying similarities behind the obvious differences of these two dance forms. Advaith is the latest choreographic work of Cultural Medallion recipient Santha Bhaskar, and our resident kathak exponent Pallavi Sharma.

Singapore International Festival of Arts – Returning

Dates: 13, 14 & 15 August 2015

Conceived by Singapore dance pioneer and Cultural Medallion recipient Goh Lay Kuan, Returning takes inspiration from the wondrous lifecycle of the salmon to celebrate Singapore’s diverse cultures. In collaboration with different generations of dance-makers and creative artists in Singapore, local choreographers including our very own Meenakshy Bhaskar construct a performance rooted in the  traditions of Chinese, Malay and Indian dance. Returning also features six of BAA’s core dancers.

Singapore International Festival of Arts – Smriti Padha

Dates: 4 & 5 September 2015

Time: 8 pm

Venue: Victoria Theatre

A treacherous game of dice, a kingdom lost and a wife humiliated – so goes Dussasana Vadham (The Slaying of Dussasana), a story that cuts to the emotional core of the Mahabharata. Dussasana Vadham was first staged in Singapore’s old Victoria Theatre in 1954 by dancers from Kerala Kalamandalam, the renowned and unique performing arts university in Kerala, India. The late KP Bhaskar was part of the committee responsible for bringing the group to Singapore. This emotional and dramatic performance now returns to the Victoria Theatre, over 60 years later, in the form of Smriti Padha (Memory Route) – a brand-new dance performance inspired by the same story and told through the enchanting forms of Kathakali, Kalaripayattu and Mohiniyattam and once again featuring some of Kerala Kalamandalam’s finest dancers. They will perform with dancers from Bhaskar’s Arts Academy to a new choreography by Singapore dance legend and Cultural Medallion recipient Santha Bhaskar.
