The Nayika Reversal
Set to Aankhon Mein Tu Hai by Penn Masala.
Danced by Aishwarya Iyer, Sindhu Sundar, and myself.
Description: In this wonderful twist on the traditional padam, the dancers play men who can't seem to catch the attention of the women they adore.
The concept here was to really utilize the medium of film to explain the story line in a less stylized and more accessible manner. We'll see how that flies.
And, just to give a little credit to my dancers - we had to dance on twigs and stones in the dappled-sunlight tree scenes. Never doing that again.
