The presentation was performed at the NCPA in August 2019 in collaboration with Sahachari Foundation.

Charishnu literally means ‘the desire to move’. This presentation features 50 dancers showcasing a selection of classical, folk and martial dance forms of India, along with an ensemble of drums from different parts of the country. Aditi Mangaldas (Kathak), Aruna Mohanty (Odissi), Priti Patel (Manipuri), Sadanam Balakrishnan (Kathakali and Mohiniattam), Imocha Singh (Thang-ta), Mahesh Vinayakram (percussion) and Leela Samson (Bharatanatyam) lead their troupes, with each individual dance style in dialogue with the other, and all coming together in a spectacular finale.

The presentation was conceptualized & directed by Leela Samson
