Episode 5: Nationalist period

As “Her story of dance’ moves to the 19th century, Yashoda discusses how devadasis and their aesthetic representations were central to the National debate during India’s struggle for Independence. We see how people, reform movements, acts, Christian missionaries and marriage all come play around what became the identity of the devadasi. In her conversations with her Guru we see how the hereditary community viewed themselves and the ‘others’ who came to represent them. Prof. Suneeta Rani and Vidya Natarajan take us through interesting figures like Dr. Muthulakshmi Reddy, Rukmini Devi Arundale and others who participated in this debate and the role they had to play in making the dance and dancing not of the devadasi
