Narthaki - stepping into year #24!

Notes of appreciation >>

After all the wars are over,
The butterfly will still be beautiful

- Ruskin Bond, author

And so here we are! At the half way mark of the year, heading towards the longest day of 2023 - June 21st - and wondering where the last months went!

May was full of pomp, ceremony and circumstance! A coronation, an inauguration, the end of two major cultural icons (singer Tina Turner and the TV show SUCCESSION), the return of Nrityagram to their beloved New York landmark JOYCE Theatre, several premieres by diaspora dancers, American summer festivals with classical dancers performing in parks and museums- it was a never ending spectacle!

A month away from home gave me a different perspective on dance, our daily endeavours and the increasing disenchantment among diaspora artistes with visiting artistes from India.
This month I choose to focus on some points that swirl around dance and the tone is reflective, sometimes somber and not always celebratory. So, read on.....
