Mohiniattam Arangetram of Daniella Zak Varghese

Daniella performs a set of new works alongside traditional repertoire pieces over her two-day debut as a solo performer.

This evening encompasses the gentle and graceful movements of Mohiniattam which is followed by the brisk and rhythmic patterns of Bharatanatyam on Sunday 2 June. Parallels can be drawn between the evenings, including the ‘Gajendra Moksham’, the ‘Saptham’ or ‘Shabdam’ on Lord Rama and the Thillana and Nrittangaharam, both in Ragam Desh concluding the events.

Daniella Zak Varghese is a disciple of Shalini Shivashankar.

Celebrating 40 inspiring years.

2019 is Akademi’s 40th anniversary year and we want to celebrate the breadth and richness of South Asian dance in the UK. We’ve invited artists to submit information on London-based events that they are planning between April 2019 and April 2020 to form the Akademi Associated programme.
