A well executed Thillana in Natabhairavi by students of Irina Iskaratenskaya. It’s one of my favorites in terms of nritta choreography, but the abhinaya passage in this thillana never sat well with me. This piece was a musical composition by Veena Krishnamachariar in praise of Rukmini Devi Arundale and the Kalakshetra institution, but I find it odd that Rukmini had choreographed the item herself. Seems very self congratulatory.
