Atlanta hosts the ‘Ambassador of Mohiniattom’
The lights dim, and there is an expectant hush as the audience falls silent. A spark of light appears on the darkened stage, which sways and flickers and then grows into a flame from a burning wick. A dancer, a vision attired in the purest of whites, steps slowly, languorously to the front of the stage, bearing in her hand the traditional ‘Nilavilakku’ (lamp) of Kerala.
No, this scene was not set in ‘God’s own country’ in the south-east corner of India. It was at the Hindu Temple of Atlanta in Riverdale, Georgia, and the occasion was the mesmerizing evening of Mohiniattom performance by Kalamandalam Radhika on September 6, 2003.
