Shruthe will be presenting a curated Margam, which delves into the nuanced, yet simple, emotions of devotion and love that are felt deeply by everyone. She explores vulnerability in its barest form, while paying homage to the artform and her teachers.

She goes beyond the technique and forms of Bharatanatyam and focuses on her relationship with its spirit. To her, Bharatanatyam is a homecoming explored through her body and mind and she aims to connect with the audience creating rasanubhava
