In conjunction with Visit Perak 2017, Greentown Indian Cultural Society in collaboration with Nethaji Subash Chandra Bose Indian Cultural Center Kuala Lumpur, High Commission of India to Malaysia, Jabatan Kebudayaan & Kesenian Negara, Perak, Majlis Kebudayaan Negeri and powered by 10 dance schools from Perak successfully organised a bharatanatyam performance featuring Professor C.V. Chandrasegar and his 10-member team from Chennai, India.
It was a mesmerising performance based on classical bharatanatyam combined with a contemporary theme, showcasing the elegance of dance as well as music. It was no mean feat for the 82-year-old professor who not only performed but choreographed the pieces by interweaving art and science which was evident in the themes.
According to Subain Singam, the President of Greentown Indian Cultural Society, this event was the 50th successful event organised by the society which focuses on keeping the love of Indian culture of arts and music alive here in Ipoh. Being Visit Perak Year and in line with its objectives, the society also took the opportunity to appreciate the dance masters from the 10 dance schools in Perak for their hard work and dedication in keeping the art of classical dance alive.
The event, held at Auditorium Kebudayaan dan Kesenian Negara Perak on July 16, was packed to the brim with dance lovers and students alike. The event was also graced by Dato’ Thangeswari, Speaker Dewan Negeri Perak.
Overall, the event was a huge success judging from the feedback received from the audience. Greentown Indian Cultural Society continues its efforts to showcase more fantastic performances for its audience for free in the near future. So do keep an eye for its next event!
