Lavni Workshop by Shakuntalabai Nagarkar

Lavani is a graceful and powerful art form of Maharashtra. Like many other regional arts, it has undergone a multiple changes over years. Yet, it has retained its essence which is direct connection with the audience and unabashed expression of sensuality. 

Lavani has a vast repertoire which covers a broader range of performance styles based on their rhythm, rasa, and themes. However, films invariably used lavani only in their 'item number' sequences. Most of us have therefore seen lavani, only as a titillating dance form. The beauty and nuanced artistry of traditional lavani has not reached us.

We propose to give an insight into this art form through our workshop. Participants get to learn it under the guidance of Shakuntalabai Nagarkar, a veteran lavani artist. They also get an opportunity to spend time and chat with her and get a glimpse into the world of Sangeet Bari.
