Panguni fest 2017: five dance recitals timed during religious events

Bharatanatyam dancers will come together to perform in an informal setting in the Sri Kapali Temple zone during the Panguni festival starting April 1. Nritya Upacharaam is curated to be part of the celebrated temple festival.

There will be five recitals of short duration, some as early as 6 a.m. and some late at night, all of them  timed to be held alongside the daily processions/rituals.
