The Department of Language and Culture has been encouraging all sorts of art forms including the dying and rare ones, for the past five years. The department’s goal is to support, protect, and preserve the age-old arts for the next generations. These five years of efforts have finally bore fruit after successfully establishing Perini as a great classical dance form of India. Perini dance is one of the rarest and oldest styles with 800 years of historic legacy.
The journey of preserving Perini Natyam led to another landmark with the additions of Surya Namaskaran, Sapta Swara Raaga Jati, Hamsa performances staged by the disciples of Perini Pavan Kumar at Ravindra Bharathi. These new experiments will definitely enrich the form and take the classical art to the next level. The earlier experiments of Perini Margam, a solo show by Satvika and Perini Rajkumar Muvva were also much-appreciated.
