The world of Alarmel Valli

Winner of the 2012 National Award for Best Film on Art & Culture

Lasya Kavya - a film on iconic Bharatanatyam dancer and choreographer Alarmel Valli, by award-winning director Sankalp Meshram, explores the intellectual, emotional and spiritual contexts within which she performs. A diverse range of performance, rehearsal, choreography and teaching sequences are interwoven with interviews and archival footage of the dancer with her dance and music gurus, offering glimpses into core ideas and complex facets of her art.

Acclaimed internationally for her distinctive dance style, "which is classical and yet contemporary, precise and poetic", Alarmel Valli has performed in major festivals and theatres in India and abroad. Amongst her numerous awards, are the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan conferred by the President of India and the Chevalier of Arts and Letters award from the Government of France.
