Book Description Lustre Press/Roli Books, New Delhi, India. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. A sweeping look at the magnificence of Indian culture through its varied dance forms, Indian Classical Dance: Tradition in Transition is a tour de force through the forms, characteristics, challenges and changes in traditional dance. At one level, it is a compendium of classical dance, an exploration of its moods and majesty, and an ode to its sublime aesthetics. At another level, it is a stunning visual and scholarly portrayal of a pluralistic society teeming with cultural vitality. It is also a graphic appreciation of the human body, captured by the camera in moments of sheer grace, structured movement, cultivated expression and divine harmony. Bharatanatyam, Kathakali, Odissi, Kathak, Mohiniattam, Manipuri, Kuchipudi: the book is an exposition of these seven major dance forms - their history, growth, decay and renewal, right from the temple floor and kingly court to the modern stage. The future of these dance forms, their struggle for preservation, and their need to keep in step with the rhythm of today's fast-paced world are themes the author, one of India's most respected dance critics, explores and tries to resolve. Brilliant photographs captured by the lens of Avinash Pasricha, undoubtedly the master of Indian dance photography, make the book as vibrant as the dances it presents. In its range, definitive appraised and visual power. Indian Classical Dance: Tradition in Transition is the best there is in its genre. Printed Pages: 144. Bookseller Inventory # 108615
