enthralled the audience with her first performance
in Chennai and her exposition was a delightful combination
of exquisite abhinaya, grace and footwork. The impression
of effortless natya remained a constant captivating
point of her recital.
Gayatri rendered her finely selected dance numbers
with ease and left the audience spell-bound with
her facial expression, devotion and versatility.
She is bound to shine in the field of Bharata Natyam
and spread it worldwide.
As translated from Tamil Magazine - Idhyam
Navarasa, a ballet
presented by Soundarya Natya Kalalaya at Indian
Fine Arts Society, German Hall was a commendable
performance. The entire program was confined to
the depiction of the nine moods, all well depicted
and brought out the best in the dancer.
Gayatri, a dedicated
disciple of Padmini Radhakrishnan, performed for
Kapali Fine Arts for the Music and Dance Art Festival.
Fluid movements marked the invocation number and
she proceeded to render other numbers with freshness
and novelty. Gayatri has Laya command not only of
the outer language of “Nritta” but more
importantly on its inner dynamics. Her mastery of
abhinaya, bhakthi bhava, korvais, araimandi and
fine posture were exceptionally good.
performance for “Kala Sandesam” in Chennai
was a notable one. The jathis, sancharis and footwork
was very well rendered and equally the expressions
in her eyes spoke of the emotion she was trying
to portray. Her Thillana in kaanada ragam was the
grand finale which had scintillating footwork and
brisk movements that left the audience spell-bound.
