Mohiniyattam

Sandra and Parvati performing Geethagovindam (Gita Govindam) Saptham

Mohiniyattam, literally meaning 'dance of the enchantress', is one of the most striking in the Indian classical dance repertoire. The efforts of Malayalam poet Vallathol Narayana Menon and dancer and guru Kalyanikutti Amma brought this art form back from possible oblivion and gave it a new life. It is characterized by its dominant element of lasya and undulating body movements. Mohiniyattam has been fraught with debates over its origin and history and controversies about hairdo etc. This multimedia module presents Mohiniyattam from different perspectives.
