[Yasmin_announcements] Le Pierres Chantantes by Dr Sharada near Geneva
Les Pierres Chantantes : le Mystère Indien ... 1/03/2009

Dr Sharada Srinivasan, archaeotechnologist and exponent of the classical south Indian dance form of Bharata Natyam with the National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore presents the event 'Le Pierres Chantantes' (the stones sing) at Haber Poche, France (near Geneva) on 1st March, 6 pm 2009 organised by Le Passeur d'Arts. She will first briefly elucidate through an illustrated talk on the scientific and artistic aspects of the mysterious stone pillars at the Vithala Temple complex, Hampi, which when struck give off resonant tones and are therefore now called musical pillars and which are accompanied by sculptures of musicians with musical instruments corresponding to these sounds. Then she will perform a classical Bharata Natyam piece inspired by this theme. Thereafter she will perform a newly choreographed piece accompanied live by French composer and percussionist Sebastien Sauvage on a lithophone designed by himself.
