Tale of the Sari

Saloni Mundra,

Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India

The three-day Classical Dance Festival was inaugurated in Ahmedabad on Saturday. Organized by Ice Group, through its philanthropic venture IceCraft, the festival will feature performances on Sunday and Tuesday. On Saturday, Daksha Sheth Dance Company's 'Sari — The Unstitched' was presented. The creation of the unique drape was demonstrated by classical dance with contemporary touch.
It traced the journey of a sari from its origin as a crop to how it is woven and finally draped. Dance representing the evolution had elements of Kathak, Chhau, Kalaripayattu and Mallakhamb forms. The uniqueness in the show left the crowd mesmerized.
