  • 19th July 2015: IGNCA SRC in association with Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, is organizing a Lecture Demonstration and Performance of Perini - Dance form of Andhra Pradesh by Shri. Kalakrishan and accompanist, Venue: Khincha Auditorium, Bhratiya Vidya Bhavan, #43, Race Course Road, Bangalore Time: 6:00 to 8:30 PM

    Perini is a form of Indian dance which was lost in timeline and which was recreated and re-established in 20th century by Padmasri Dr. Nataraja Ramakrishna. Perini Shiva Tandavam is the stimulator to activate the dormant dynamism in human. Perini is the slang form of the word ‘prerana’ which means stimulation. It is said to be the only form of scientifically composed male warrior dance and a form of traditional Indian dance with tala, gati, yati vinyasa. While performing and viewing this dance we experience a state where the panchabhutas are slowly mingling into the Shiva Tattva.The Perini dancer is possessed with an energy and that can be proved incessantly where the sound ‘tam’ from the mridangam resembles the ‘aum’. To prove this Dr. Nataraja Ramakrishna used Dhrupada Mridanga Baani. The sound produced in the solar plexus region extends to rest of the body and stimulates them.To perform this art it requires the perfect co-ordination of mind, body and soul. It is a kind of ritual also where one can offer prayers to Lord Shiva and it is said to activate the kundalini. Dr. Sudha Murthy, Chairperson of the Infosys Foundation inaugurated the performance and on the spot made a generous donation to all the artists and urged them to keep this rare tradition alive.
