EN-DANCING THE UNIVERSE

(Padmashri) VIDUSHI SMT. GEETA CHANDRAN

Dancer/Choreographer

 A universally celebrated artist, a celebrity and a star-performer, Geeta Chandran is synonymous with the Indian classical dance: Bharatanatyam. She began learning Bharatanatyam from the tender age of 5 years under the tutelage of Smt. Swarna Saraswathy, who hailed from the traditional Thanjavoor dasi parampara. Subsequently, Geeta continued learning diverse aspects of the classical dance from a galaxy of eminent Gurus.

Today, Geeta Chandran is a renowned artist who has synthesised the knowledge she received from her stalwart Gurus to imprint Bharatanatyam with her personal vision of the dance. In her dance presentations Geeta Chandran skilfully weaves abstract notions of Joy, Beauty, Values, Aspirations, Myth and Spirituality.

A polymath artist, Geeta Chandran effortlessly catalyses multiple vectors of creativity. She is celebrated not only for her deep and composite understanding of the art of Bharatanatyam, but also for her Carnatic music (she is a trained and accomplished vocalist), her work in television, video and film, theatre, choreography, dance education,

dance activism and dance-issue journalism. But all these vectors lead to stillness and a recognition of stirring universes within the self.

 

An A-Top graded dancer at Doordarshan and at the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), Geeta is recipient of several prestigious awards including the Lady Shri Ram College Illustrious Alumna Award, the Dandayudhapani Pillai Award, the Bharat Nirman Award, the Natya Ilavarasi, the Indira Priyadarshini Award, the Media India Award, the National Critics Award, the Guru Deba Prasad Das Award, the Sringar Mani and the Natya Ratna.

Founder-President of Natya-Vriksha, an organization devoted to promoting Bharatanatyam, Geeta has evolved a holistic style of teaching the classical dance which engages young learners. She has presented the arangetrams (debut performance) of over 40 senior disciples who continue their training under her and she continues to mentor over one hundred disciples; several of her students have blossomed as full-fledged performers. At Natya Vriksha Geeta galvanizes her role in different directions; pure classical work and research, intense preparation of classical soloists, creating group choreographies and also engaging with cross-over work. And she attempts all these genres concurrently!

 

Geeta Chandran is also Artistic Director of the Natya Vriksha Dance Company, known for the high aesthetic quality of its group presentations. She has travelled all over the world with her performances and has danced at many prestigious dance festivals in India and abroad. In 2007, she was invited to perform at the World Hindi Conference in New York, and then again to represent India at the India-60 celebrations at the Lincoln Centre

in New York. She was invited to travel all over the UK as part of the celebrations of 60 year of the Indian Republic. In the summer of 2013, she travelled through Poland popularizing Bharatanatyam and Indian values.

In her mission to “en-dance the universe”, Geeta has constantly striven to create new spaces for the classical dancer of today. She has continuously attempted to push the frontiers of the classical art and to reach out to new, and especially young, audiences. Geeta believes that dance must be linked to life and that artists must use their unique position in society to make a difference to life and living. Her choreographies HER VOICE and IMAGINING PEACE articulated her conviction that dance can be a vehicle to build social bridges. Her widely acclaimed dance-theatre production KAIKEYI and her choreographies on the themes of DRUGS have thrown the spotlight on issues of social stigma. Her 2008 work -- MYTHOLOGIES RETOLD -- addressed the social curse of female feticide. She is also known for using classical Bharatanatyam to amplify gender and environmental issues. Her most recent work GANDHI: Warp and Weft is hailed for spotlighting minimalism in Indian dance choreography.

In expanding the frontiers of her classical dance performances, Geeta Chandran has collaborated with a wide range of dancers, musicians, crafts-persons, authors, writers, poets, painters, theatre-personalities, academicians, philosophers, linguists and costume & fashion designers.

Geeta is associated with several NGOs and charitable organizations raising resources for valuable causes, among them peace, environment and peace. She is well-known for her association with philanthropic causes, and has presented innumerable performances to raise funds for worth social causes. She is most especially identified with gender issues and poverty. She has added value to health campaigns endorsing better heart care, keeping youth off drugs, on protecting the environment and promoting peace in South Asia.

Arts Education is another of her impassioned commitments and she is an advocate for incremental arts education supporting both government and private initiatives to achieve a higher level of arts learning as part of formal education.

Geeta Chandran also believes in exploring creative channels of support for the arts, for better quality arts management in India and tapping Corporate Cultural Responsibility for better funding of the arts, and especially dance.

Geeta has authored a book SO MANY JOURNEYS, an intensely personal collection of her writings narrating her engagement with Bharatanatyam. She also writes an influential dance column in The New Indian Express/Sunday Standard. She is also writes regular feature articles in Hindi for the Rajasthan Patrika Group.

A rare combination of being both a luminary and a visionary, Geeta Chandran is a widely respected role model for the young generation. She guides reputed national cultural institutions and prestigious universities as their Board member, and she also serves on the Advisory Boards of several reputed schools and colleges. She is Chairperson of the Board of Kamala Nehru College, University of Delhi. She is a Board Member of both Springdales School and Shiv Nadar Schools.

Geeta is the Government of India’s nominee to the Executive Board of the Central Sangeet Natak Akademi and she is a Member of the General Council of the SNA. She is also a Member of the General Council of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations and is a Member on ICCR’s Empanelment Committee. She is also Trustee of the HINDI BHAVAN in New Delhi.

She engages in the widest range of dance-related activities: performing, teaching, conducting, singing, collaborating, organizing, writing and speaking to new youth audiences (including via TED-X and other young forums).

In her book entitled Dynamic Women Dancers (Women’s Hall of Fame series) Canadian author Anne Dublin listed Geeta Chandran as one of ten global “all time great dancers”.

In recognition of her vast and varied contribution to Bharatanatyam, Geeta was awarded the prestigious national award -- the Padma Shri -- by the President of India in 2007.
