This work is the first of its kind in the world of performing arts that explores and investigates into the motivation psychology and personality through the medium of choreographic works of a multi faceted artist which in this case is the celebrated Indian classical dancer of the Kathak style Shovana Narayan. A living legend in the field of art she has set a unique trend by redefining dance and a dancer's life for she is the first ever professional career dancer who combines a full fledged career as a senior serving civil servant in the Government of India. She epitomizes the essence of the Natyasastra Patra (NS 6.11) that should be imbued with eleven characteristics such as Rasa Bhava Abhinaya Dharmi Vritti Pravritti Siddhi Svara Atodya Gana and Ranga. Thus she is the true representative of the Indian cultural heritage that the Sastras speak about in the context of personality. This book makes a serious enquiry into the authenticity of the origin of choreographic works of Shovana Narayan most of which became trend setters whether it was the use of flares of the skirt in Moon light Impressionism (1993) or the use of English text (1992) or to themes relating to philosophy and social awareness (1983 onwards) or performing with dancers of other styles (1976 on wards) and to music from around the globe (1982 onwards). Besides an in depth analysis that covers a wide range of expressions and emotions the book also includes views of eminent philosophers poets writers art journalists eminent political and administrative personalities as well as leading performing artistes. Choreographic works of Shovana who has dared to be different and has not been afraid to thread unbeaten paths reflect her innate sensitivity and a deep respect for humanity. 200 pp. N° de ref. de la librería 57909
