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

Avijit Das Performing Ganesha kauthuvam at Indian Habitat Centre.

Avijit Das, a rising star on the Kuchipudi horizon, gave a commendable performance in the traditional
repertoire for most part of his performance at the India Habitat Centre. For this critic it felt like going down
memory lane to watch a vibrant execution of a ‘shabdam,’ ‘Dasavataram’ and ‘Tarangam’ devoid of
interpolations in the name of sophistry. Avijit brought the memories of Kuchipudi masters come alive with his
untampered style… the pieces are always crisp and invigorating and never too long-drawn; so did the dancer
who kept a close eye on the text and idiom in all earnestness. His footwork, gesticulation and sancharis were
accurate to the changing pace of the rhythm; the only polish he brought into the dance without sacrificing its
purity of expression was his stylishly cut out movements and eloquent facial feelings in tune with the
connotation of the lyric… by Ranee Kumar – October 27, 2016
