What is Bharatanatyam? - N. Pattabhi Raman

What is Bharatanatyam? - N. Pattabhi Raman | Bharatanatyam | Scoop.it
BNandWWW's insight:

Sruti's editor-in-chief Late. N. Pattabhi Raman wrote this essay 13 years ago to sort out the confusions about Bharatanatyam. The response to this essay is thought to be the article by Dr. Avanthi Meduri in The Hindu titled "Talibanisation of the performing arts" accusing of the "blue book" of not discussing how bharatanatyam became an art form. She says "Sadir surely did not become an art form simply because it was renamed and presented by devadasis on the platform of the Madras Music Academy! The form had to be spatialised, re-costumed, re-narrativised, and re-contextualised on the proscenium stage so that it would be continuous with temple."
