Book Description
It is well-known that Indian classical dances, rooted in deep traditions, came virtually into their own after the nation`s Independence. But the process had begun in the 1930`s gathered momentum soon and received ample re-vitalisation within next half a century. Interestingly, it was in the 1930`s, too, that modern dance - based on contemporary sensibilities - also burst upon the scene. Inspired by the Western sources, but consolidated by Uday Shankar and his ardent disciple, many exciting dance-styles have emerged which depend primarily on their practitioners. The collective corpus of their work is seen here through an analytical eye, - in dialogue with the dancers: so as not to miss their own creative viewpoints. To each critical survey`s body-and-soul has been added the dancers` own voice, - by including Kolkata and Delhi overviews by two prominent professionals of contemporary genre.
