Izerobzero and Samskriti School of Dance
KANNAGI ENBATHEN PEYARE (SILAPPDINKARAM)
Kannagi enbathen peyare is a portrayal of how love manifests as courage in humans, when their beloved are subjected to injustices.
Kannagi was a young woman, second to none in her devotion to her husband. Hailing from a virtuous family, well versed in her culture and expectations of the norm, stands up to the King holding him accountable for the unfairness dealt to her husband, when her cries for help go unheard.
All dancers and musicians are torchbeares of classical carnatic music and bharathanatyam in Sydney.
The production Kannagi enbathen peyare is an initiative of lzerobzero, a nascent social enterprise, in collaboration with Samskriti School of Dance, both based in Sydney.
The production was conceived as an integral component of lzerobzero’s eﬀorts to drive objectivity in analysis, fairness in decision making and sincerity in execution in every individual activity of every human in every entity irrespective of nationality or lineage as a solution to assure the dignity of every human. It is based on original poetry by Sumathy Ramesh (ISBN978-06451052-1-6) set to music by seven renowned carnatic musicians from Sydney, Malathi Nagarajan, Shuba Harinath, Chitra Krishnamoorthy, Mohan Ayyar, Mythili Mallikeswaran and Prema Ananthakrishnan and choreographed by Hamsa Venkat.
