Deshi Maarga Adavu are a new set of artistically designed movement vocabulary developed by Smt. Nirupama Rajendra, Bharatanrityam and Kathak artiste from Bangalore. Inspired by the reconstruction of the Maarga Karanas by Padma Bhushan Guru Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam, this new set of 108 movements are created with the aim of blending the Deshi movements of Bharatanatyam with its Maarga counterparts. The movements shift the dimension of Bharatanatyam from being linear to curvilinear and thus, leads to the participation of the entire body and mind. The Deshi Maarga Adavu are easy for the mind to grasp and the body to perform as they are born from a deep understanding of the natural flow and movement of the human body. Every unit has been named by Shatavadhani Dr. R Ganesh, who has also guided the process of developing these 108 movements. Music is composed and directed by Vid. Praveen D Rao based on its feel and purpose of creation. Tuning for specific categories of Deshi Maarga Adavu is done by Vidushi. Ranjani Vasuki, Vidushi. Varijashree and Vidwan. Raghuram. The movements can be used as a part of nṛtta — non-representation dance and also can be applied for abhinaya, as they are impregnated with rich emotion.
