Nritya is an artwork belonging to Surendra Narayan Saraf’s collection.

Nritya (IAST: Nṛtya, नृत्य), also known as Nrit, Nritta, Natana or Natya, refers to “dance, stage act, act, gesture, play” in Indian traditions.  Sometimes it is divided into two forms: nritta or pure dance, in which the expressionless movements of a dancer play the rhythms and phrases of the music; and nritya or expressive dance, in which the dancer includes facial expression and body language to portray mood and ideas with rhythmic movements to communicate with the audience. The artist wanted to immortalize a typical Indian dance, with movements dictated by millenary rules of Hinduism. The dancer with her movements tells ancient stories. It is pure Indian classical dance, and as such it has strict rules, but whoever manages to dance it transmits unique sensations to the eyes and mind.
