The finale performance of the festival will be a traditional Bharatanatyam Margam or prescribed repertoire format, presented by Alumni of Kalakshetra Foundation alongside a live orchestra. This performance represents a style that has been uniquely influential to South Indian classical dance since the early twentieth century. Showcased will be the Kalakshetra technique as it has maintained tradition while adapting to changed contexts over the many years of its history. A show of this magnitude has never before been attempted; seven generations of dancers are coming together on one stage for the first time! These performers, each rooted from the same training have come together exclusively for this presentation to showcase the creation of their own artistic legacies.
