Marabu - Footprints of an ArtistFollowing the presentation of Marabu – The First Ripple and Marabu – The Forgotten Sentinels, Bhaskar’s Arts Academy premieres the final instalment of the trilogy, Marabu – Footprints of an Artist.
As a tribute to the late pioneer artist Santha Bhaskar, this work traces her journey from her humble origins in Kerala, India, to the blossoming of her career as a dancer and choreographer in Singapore. It sheds light on the various passages in her life that have forged her artistic sensibilities, from her arranged marriage to dance doyen KP Bhaskar, her encounters with cultural purists which guided her spirit of rule-breaking innovation, to her exposure to other cultural dances in Singapore, whose forms she later incorporated into her unique choreographic style.
Santha Bhaskar’s daughter, Meenakshy Bhaskar, directs and choreographs this dance biopic, featuring music composition by BV Balasai, as well as script and dramaturgy by Alfian Sa'at. It is a fitting end to a trilogy which honours the restless curiosity and unbending courage of various pioneers throughout Singapore’s history.
