Erasing Borders Festival of Indian Dance – “Dancetabs”

But the highlight, at least for me, was the performance by Avijit Das, a kuchipudi dancer from Bangalore. Das dances with a striking subtlety and crispness, a characteristic he shares with another kuchipudi dancer, Shantala Shivalingappa. Both were students of Vempati Chinna Satyam, a great innovator of the form. Perhaps these are elements of his … Continue reading

Erasing Borders Dance Festival By Indo-American Arts Council – “DanceViewtimes”

Avijit Das performed at both concerts as well, but perhaps because he was pinch-hitting Saturday for another artist, we saw him at his best on Monday. “Tarangam” showed off his nature in a way “Dashavatara Shabdam” didn’t. To use ballet terms, Das is a petit allegro dancer: lithe and wiry, with speed, line, and a … Continue reading

Moving like a master, Indian Habitat Center – “The Hindu”

Traditional Indian Dance, With Room for New Blood – “The New York Times”

Mr. Das has more attack, more hunger. Nobody ate up space so eagerly or in more staggeringly nonstop sequences. I kept thinking, “When’s the abhinaya section coming?” for he kept his nritta on the go for many minutes on end: bounding in jumps, rapidly tapping the soles of his feet on the floor, and rippling … Continue reading
