Chennai, Dec 9:
The ambiance at the Rasika Ranjani Sabha, Mylapore, on the second day of the Trinity Arts Festival, was serene and the audience, including some well known dance artistes occupying their seats on the front-row and eagerly waiting to watch the kuchipudi dance of Laasya Mavillapalli, who has carved a niche for herself around the world.
The dance programme in the afternoon began with ‘Jayamu Sri Balaa’ in Hamsadhwani and Kambhoji in Adi Tala, Mavillapalli had made impeccable performance with her bhaavas and her body language bringing out the intrinsic meaning of the song Jayamu.
Indeed her performance for the numbers of Narasimhacharis Naa hrudya Peetipai in Raagamalika and Thalamalika, Ashtavida Nayiks in Ragamalika in Khanda Chapu and Paravasapramadham ee natya Kala in Talamalika had thrilled the audience.
Lasya Mavilapalli’s sparkling performance for the song Ashtavida Nayika in Raagamalika, Khanda Chapu thalam was an unforgettable experience. An aura of divinity was created when Mavilapalli performed the number of Narasimhachari’s.
One could notice and recognise what each numbers of the song are trying to explicit, from the facial expression of Mavillapalli with mudras, which are considered for any Kuchipudi and Bharathyanatyam exponents. This, Mavillapalli proved with her matured performance at the RR Sabha and there is no wonder how the artistes had worked hard for several years to reach her pinnacle in her dancing career.
Her performance for the Paravasapramadham, in Ragamalika in Thalamalika thalam, had brought out the entire feelings of her and decorated the dais with her impeccable performance of Kuchipudi.
