Dear Friends,

We are fortunate to have Dr Sunil Kothari to present an illustrated talk on Chandralekha, a controversial, revolutionary and towering figure in Indian dance who redefined modernity from the Indian perspectives. A feminist and crusader of human rights (especially women’s rights) and secularism, Chandralekha liberated Indian dance from it’s overtly romantised religiosity and instead spoke of dance as a celebration of the body. She left a legacy of works which are themed on the indivisibility of sexuality, sensuality and spirituality. There is no better scholar than Dr Sunil Kothari who is able to speak of the life, time and Art of Chandralekha and we are most privileged to have him at the ICC to do exactly that!
