OurVarnam is a creative project gathering the Varnams of dancers across the UK into a curated online gallery. It aims to connect dancers of all forms but especially Bharatanatyam with each other and a wider audience.
The inspiration for this project is Divya Kasturi Company’s latest work, To Varnam…With Love, a story of love, devotion and commitment; to a god, to a myth, to a way of moving and being.
#OurVarnam will be a beautiful, heart-warming gallery of youthful talent and will encourage wider audiences to connect with our To Varnam…With Love performance.
Why are we doing this project?
To celebrate the Varnam as a unique expression of each dancer to their craft
To raise profile and connect new audiences to Divya Kasturi Company and To Varnam…With Love
To create a legacy for the performance in an online archive of Varnams
To create an authentic online project at a time of limited live experience
Connect new audiences to Bharatanatyam
To connect with new partners and dancers
