Acclaimed dancers such as Padma Subramanyam, Raminder Khurana, Sadanand Biswas, Pallavi Krishnan and Madhavapeddi Murthy will perform on Bharatanatyam, Odissi, Kathak, Mohiniyattam and Kuchipudi respectively. The performances, scheduled from 6pm to 8.30pm, are free and open to all.
“Bhavan’s motto is to preserve and promote our cultural heritage. Hence, it is only apt that we organise a classical dance festival to celebrate our 75th anniversary,” said Kamlesh Mota, programme director of Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan Kala Kendra, the organisation’s cultural wing.
The next phase of the year-long celebrations will include a classical music and theatre festival, date for which are yet to be decided.
Earlier, the organisation had also hosted a Hindi drama competition.
“We urge everyone, especially the youth, to participate in the programmes,” said Mota.
