About this Event

Alarmél Valli is a celebrated Bharata Natyam dancer and choreographer, internationally acclaimed for her ability to turn a traditional grammar into a subtle, deeply internalized, personal dance poetry. Her dance, while rooted in the classical tradition, has been lauded as an undeniable language of self-expression that is dynamic and continuously evolving, able to connect with audiences across the board, from the specialist to the layperson.

Having trained under legendary gurus, Pandanallur Sri Chokkalingam Pillai and his son Sri Subbaraya Pillai, she has evolved a distinctive style of dance that has been described as, "classical and yet contemporary, precise and poetic... both a stylised idiom and an idiolect, blurring the boundaries between tradition and the individual talent, inheritance and invention."

In recognition of Alarmél Valli's contribution to dance, in 2004, she was awarded one of India’s highest civilian honours - the ‘Padma Bhushan’, conferred by the President of India. In the same year, the Government of France conferred on her the Chevalier of Arts and Lettres. Amongst numerous awards received, are the President’s award of "Padmasri", the Tamilnadu State Government award of Kalaimamani, the ‘Grande Medaille de la Ville de Paris’ from the City of Paris and the Award of the Sangeet Natak Akademy- the apex body for music, dance and drama in India.
