Myth and legend came to life in The Seedling premises,when a splendid dance personality Smt. MandakiniTrivedi enthralled the audience with her spectacular performance along with her accompaniments under the aegis of SPIC MACAY (Society for promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture among Youngsters) on Saturday, 20th April'19. SPIC MACAY seeks to conserve and promote this awareness of our rich and heterogeneous cultural tapestry amongst the youth of the country through forms of the classical arts.
MandakiniTrivedi is the recipient of SahityaAkademi Award for the contribution in Mohiniattam- an Indian Classical Dance form.
It is rightly said that dance is the conversation between body and soul. It is a perfect blend of mind, body and soul which Mandakiniji portrayed through her beautiful steps. Performers displayed a unique presentation that portrayed a distinct amalgamation of life and culture. Artiste performed wonderfully on the mythological story which enamoured the audience. Students relished every scene and got attracted with their gripping depiction of the various dance forms.
MandakiniTrivedi explained the various dance dorms and the movements of the body being compared with the serene beauties of the swaying of the palm leaves of Kerela, the undulating water movements and the animal life life that abounds there in the lap of nature. The dance forms and its portrayal was so poignant that the students watched in pin drop silence, breaking into thunderous applause as the scene ended.
SPIC MACAY is the medium to not only promote awareness among youngsters as regards music and our cultural heritage, but also provides rich experience of listening to senior artists. The performance was a wonderful display of synchronisation, agility, rhythm, discipline and skill.
Dance and music is an effective way of expressing that soothes the mind and makes it whole, flow from heaven to soul.
