Every regional dance form in India derives the essence of its dance form from the ancient, encyclopedic work on the theatre arts - Natyaśāstra.
Mārga refers to the universal classical tradition that is realized and documented in the Natyaśāstra.
Any art which is dynamic, develops, changes and grows on new lines with the passage of time; but sustenance with authenticity has been a challenge through the process of constant change due to various reasons. All the dance styles having their roots in the Natyaśāstra was the fact which was fading due to lack of knowledge.
But Dr Padma through her research and reconstruction of the practical aspects of dance revived the artistic techniques as described in the Natyaśāstra and bridged the gap between theory and practice.
Her disciple Anuradha Vikranth seeks to carry forward this rich tradition and legacy with the initiative of MARGA DRISHTI, including imparting training in the movement vocabulary of the Natyaśāstra.
