Anupa Thakurta and Bharatanatyam, one of the oldest Indian classical dance styles

Bharatanatyam is one of the oldest dance forms of India, and nowadays is also one of the most popular and widely performed dance styles in that country. In Atlanta, we went to the Deeksha School of Performing Arts where dancer and choreographer Anupa Thakurta is teaching and spreading the knowledge of Bharatanatyam to a wider community.

Anupa learned this Indian classical dance under the tutelage of Padmashri Guru Saroja Vaidyanathan. When she moved to Atlanta, she set up a dance studio as a platform for students to appreciate the dance form, that with a wide range of movements and postures, lends itself to experimental and fusion choreography.

At the Deeksha School of Performing Arts she teaches Bharatanatyam juxtaposed with other dance forms, and occasionally, they produce performances open to the public where they showcase the beauty and captivating movements of this dance style. They presented their last show “Aakriti” at the Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta.

We went backstage at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta to talk with Ken Double, the masterful organist who plays the beloved “Mighty Mo.” The world’s second largest theater organ, it utilizes 3,622 pipes ranging from the size of a ball point pen to 32 feet tall and wide enough for a man to stand in, and, says Double, “It is a privilege to play.”

Rethinking living spaces with SCADPAD

We went to experience SCADpad, the project created by the Savannah College of Art and Design retrofitting a parking garage deck at their Atlanta campus as living space.

The idea of rethinking urban living spaces is very important for cities around the world, addressing the increasing number of people living in them. The question of how to do it, is still looking for answers.

Small houses seem to be a trendy concept for Millennials and millennial minded.

What do you need to call a place home? Can you transform parking buildings into living communities? Felipe Barral went to explore SCADpad spending the night in one of the houses.
