Shruti Abhishek: Margam

October 29, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Margam marks Shruti Abhishek’s first full-length solo work as a Bharatanatyam dancer in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is a gift to herself after being in the United States for a decade and a celebration of belonging, community, and motherhood all still being found in a new homeland.

Before embarking on her solo journey in the United States, Shruti studied with Rohini Singhi, and this performance is an homage to both her early training and the continued process of revealing the multiple layers that inhabit Bharatanatyam, an art form that is her second skin. Shruti owes her practice to her teachers and to the hereditary dancers and their tireless work.

Since 2012, she has been learning from Vaibhav Arekar, who is also the Director and Choreographer of Margam. Ensemble musicians are Sindhu Natarajan on Vocal, Vikram Raghukumar on Violin, Srinath Bala on Mridangam (percussion), and Vaibhav Arekar on Nattuvangam (Cymbals).

Margam means a path or a course followed.  It is one full definite course where in dance items are performed in a traditional order.
