Nupur performed group recitals for the Inaugral function of Symphony in January and the Alumni Function in March 2017.

Indian Classical Dance Society, July-November 2016

Nupur commenced its activities for the semester with a solo presentation in the Founder’s Day function. The traditional Bharatanatyam thillana was presented by first year student, Krittika Kumar.

In August, the society also organized its annual auditions to induct new promising talent. For the Independence Day celebrations, the society chose the theme of being different and yet being able to work together, as a meaning of independence. The performance was a fusion of Odissi, Bharatnatyam and Kathak.

In October, two screenings were organized—a presentation on the Natyashastra and the classical dance forms, and a documentary on the folk form of Purulia Chhau. Each screening was followed by a discussion.

Convenors: Mrs. Nirmala Murlidhar, Ms Charu Kala and Ankan Dhar
