IDF@SV DANCER SHILPA TORVI PREMIERES NEW WORK

The International Dance Festival@Silicon Valley loves to follow the work of its artists. Shilpa Torvi participated in the Choreo-cubator© this summer; two of her group works were presented in the Festival Concert and she also presented work in the Choreo-cubator© showcase. That makes the upcoming premiere of her major new work all the more exciting. Shilpa discovered a wonderful vehicle for her desire to expand the movement horizons of Bharatanatyam. The heroine of the ballet La Bayadere is an Indian temple dancer. What a perfect opportunity for Shilpa’s creative explorations: using the elegance and narrative power of Bharatnatyam within the enchanting tale of a dancer’s passions. Original music for the Ballet in Bharatanatyam is by Australian Satyajeet Samant. Choreographic Support was contributed by Pratima Shah. The new La Bayadere should become a classic. Be there for an extraordinary experience. Nov. 14 & 15, Jackson Theater, Ohlone College, Fremont, CA. For tickets & information: www.dikshaadanceacademy.comaarohi
