Samanvaya

Samanvaya, which means “in unison”, ventures an encounter between two dancers, Madhavi Mudgal et Alarmel Valli, who were delighted to compare their art forms for the first time: Odissi and Bharatanatyam. By exploring the differences and the similarities between these two styles of classical Indian dance and the two systems of music (Carnatic in southern India, Hindustani in the north), the two dancers contribute to the recognition of a thousand-year-old art, while at the same time living the tradition as a dynamic movement of opportunity and renewal. The musical compositions are based on a common “raga” which brings out the intrinsic characteristics of each form. Each solo or duet shows pure and narrative dance, whether in the geometrical and energetic Bharatanatyam style with its stylised hand gestures and facial expressions, or in the more lyrical, sensual and graceful Odissi style.

Mudgal, Madhavi

Madhavi’s command over the nritta or purely ornamental aspect of Odissi is striking. Her delicate postures and strong rhythmic footwork combine in an appealing flow of sculpturesque movements. Her subtle abhinaya (the expressional aspect of dance), musical knowledge and aesthetic sense add to the highly distinctive character of her recitals.

Through teaching, performing and conducting workshops, Madhavi has been actively involved in propagating the art of Odissi in New Delhi and other parts of India as well as the world. She has trained a number of accomplished students who are performers in their own right. In nineteen eighty five she organized a seminar and festival, Angahaar, a first of its kind event in New Delhi when gurus, scholars and dancers met to revisit the origins of Odissi and think about the future trends of the dance form. She also directed and produced a short audio-visual documentary that was screened at the festival.

Madhavi’s father, the late Professor Vinay Chandra Maudgalya was the founder of the famous Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, New Delhi’s first and most highly reputed institution for the teaching of Hindustani music and classical dance. Madhavi has been teaching Odissi at this institute for many years.

She has received repeated acclaim in the major cities and dance festivals that have featured her throughout the world : like the Edinburgh International Festival, U.K. ; Festival of India in USA ; the Cervantino Festival, Mexico ; Vienna Dance Festival, Austria ; Festival of Indian Dance, South Africa ; Festival of Indian Culture, Sao Paulo, Brazil ; Days of Indian Culture, Hungary ; Festival of Indian Arts, London ; the Avignon Festival, France ; Pina Bausch’s Festival, Wuppertal and Berlin Festpiele, Germany ; and festivals in Italy, Spain, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Japan and the Indian subcontinent.
She has been associated with the making of several films and audio-visuals on Odissi as well as with the organisation of some of the most widely appreciated specialised dance festivals in India.

Valli, Alarmel

Alarmél Valli is a celebrated Bharata Natyam dancer and choreographer, internationally acclaimed for her ability to turn a traditional grammar into a subtle, deeply internalized, personal dance poetry. Her dance, while rooted in the classical tradition, has been lauded as an undeniable language of self-expression that is dynamic and continuously evolving, able to connect with audiences across the board, from the specialist to the layperson.

Having trained under legendary gurus, Pandanallur Sri Chokkalingam Pillai and his son Sri Subbaraya Pillai, she has evolved a distinctive style of dance that has been described as, "classical and yet contemporary, precise and poetic... both a stylised idiom and an idiolect, blurring the boundaries between tradition and the individual talent, inheritance and invention."

In recognition of Alarmél Valli's contribution to dance, in 2004, she was awarded one of India’s highest civilian honours - the ‘Padma Bhushan’, conferred by the President of India. In the same year, the Government of France conferred on her the Chevalier of Arts and Lettres. Amongst numerous awards received, are the President’s award of "Padmasri", the Tamilnadu State Government award of Kalaimamani, the ‘Grande Medaille de la Ville de Paris’ from the City of Paris and the Award of the Sangeet Natak Akademy- the apex body for music, dance and drama in India.

In 2004, The Films Division of India commissioned a film on Alarmél Valli for the Indian National Archives called ‘Pravahi’, which was directed by Arun Khopkar. The BBC also made a film on her for the Omnibus series. In 2012, 'Lasya Kavya - The World of Alarmél Valli', a film on her by Sankalp Meshram, won the National Award for Best Film on Art and Culture.

Alarmél Valli's work has been featured at landmark theatres and festivals in India and abroad. Some of the international cultural venues at which she has performed include - the Bolshoi Theatre, the Theatre De La Ville, the Avignon Festival, the Lyon Biennale, the Vienna International Dance Festival, The Munich Opera Festival, The Edinburgh Festival, the Royal Albert Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the New York International Festival of Arts,The Kennedy Centre, the Min-On Festival in Japan, the Venice Biennale, The Madrid Festival, the Helsinki Biennale, the Frankfurt Alte Oper and The Israel Festival.

In 1986, Valli founded the Dipasikha Dance Foundation and Educational Trust. Through lecture demonstrations, master classes, workshops and seminars in India and abroad, Valli shares her thoughts on Bharatanatyam, as a dynamic, contemporary dance language. A few of the forums in which she has worked, include Spic Macay in India, the Societe Italiana del Flauto Dolce, The Philharmonic society in Rome, the International Sommertanzwochen in Vienna, The Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society and Universities across the US.
