More About V.P. and Shantha Dhananjayan and Kanak Rele :

This year, we journey towards hasya. In the world of communication, hasya is the magic key. It is a powerful tool to put a difficult point across, to break the ice in a conversation or to simply be happy. We celebrate this rasa with a series of performances by acclaimed artists. Multi Dance Style Presentation by Kanak Rele & Group Bharatanatyam by V.P. Dhananjayan & Shanta Dhananjayan Kanak Rele is a world-renowned classical dance exponent as well as a scholar of Indian culture. A renowned performer, educationist, research scholar and, above all, a guru par excellence, Rele has today become a legend in her own lifetime. The President of India has described her as ‘a pioneering dance educationist and topmost Mohiniattam exponent’. She has received several awards that include the Padma Bhushan (2013), Padma Shri (1990), Sangeet Natak Akademi Ratna Award, Kalidas Samman (2006) for her contribution to Mohiniattam and a lifetime of achievement. Mohiniattanm exponent Kanak Rele will explore the various degrees of hasya through different characters. Rama, who is a pious figure, will smile with a few teeth but always with restraint. Sita, on the other hand, might smile on a coy fashion towards her husband or when expressing her desire upon seeing the golden deer. Shurpanakha, the sister of Ravana, will essay a demonic kind of laughter. While they all have hasya in common, they are all different in their own ways.
