Dancers focussed on relationships with friends, Self and God. The last two performances of Narada Gana Sabha’s Natyarangam saw Uma Nambudripad Sathyanarayanan and Lakshmi Parthasarathy Athreya come together to explore the theme of Sakhyam (friendship). The dancers presented the journey of two little girls who take their first steps together, and grow up to become young women. Along the way, they discover the true meaning of friendship. The performance was enhanced by the music of Rajkumar Bharati, and rendered well by Nandini Anand. Orchestral support came from Sukanya Ravindhar (nattuvangam), Venkatasubramaniam (mridangam), R. Thiagarajan (flute) and Mudicondan Ramesh (veena). Lighting design was by Murugan.
