Mala

Actrice, danseres en choreograaf Rukmini Vijayakumar bestormt de wereld met haar eigen benadering van Bharatanatyam. Alastair Macaulay schreef in de New York Times: ‘she has a stirringly beautiful face, with burning eyes that repeatedly catch the observer’s breath (…) she is the first Bharatanatyam dancer I can remember to do the splits’. Het laatste onthult haar achtergrond in moderne dans en ballet. Rukmini valt op door een frisse, atletische techniek, indringende expressie en is een echte inspiratie voor jonge dansers. Na haar succesvolle Nederlandse debuut in 2016 zijn we verheugd dat ze terug in Korzo is met de wereldpremière van Mala. In dit programma onderzoekt Rukmini de grenzen en mogelijkheden binnen de vertellingsstructuur en danstechniek van Bharatanatyam. Ze verschuift ons perpectief op ruimte, dynamiek en emoties en plaatst hierdoor de eeuwenoude dansvorm in een verrassende hedendaagse context.

uit de pers

The slender, supple Ms. Vijayakumar has a stirringly beautiful face, with burning eyes that repeatedly catch the observer’s breath; and she makes those eyes part of the fabric of the dance. She uses the whole body, sometimes acrobatically. She is the first Bharatanatyam dancer I can remember to do the splits, and in her modern solo she takes one sculptural balance and then adjusts it to hold her foot, behind her, up by her head. (The New York Times by Alastair Macaulay 2011)

'Rukmini Vijayakumar mesmerized the audience by her sterling Bharatanatyam performance at Bharat Bhavan' (Hindustan Times 2008)

'Performance of dancer, Rukmini Vijayakumar drew the attention of everybody during the Kalidas Festival. The audience steadily observed expression and movement……Her perfect timing and rhythm with the music was extraordinary and hugely appreciated by the audiences.' (Indore Journal, 2006)

'Dance is the hidden language of the soul, the mind and the body, and for Rukmini Vijayakumar, it is her life breath. The Bangalore based danseuse gave an astounding performance in Bharat Kalachar, where she made the audience go into raptures even before she completed a dance piece.' (News Today 2005)
