Nartanam - Vol V No.4

A Quarterly Journal of Indian Dance - Volume V - Number 4 - October to December 2005 (Vedantam Satyanarayana Sarma in Female Impersonation)

This exceptional performance skill challenging all norms of credibility is the mainstay of Vedantam Satyanarayana Sarma's virtuosity of impersonating women, a virtuosity that beguiles both men and women. For sixty years he has been trekking down places, up and down, in the length and breadth of India and wherever he performed he stole the hearts of the spectators and brought Kuchipudi national honour and international recognition. Two Satyams - Vempati Chinna Satyam and Vedantam Satyam- were singularly responsible for projecting the Kuchipudi dance form far and wide on the national and international horizon in recent years; Vempati by widening and modifying the performance structure of the traditional format and Vedantam by chiselling each bit of the performance to its natural perfection and bringing each character he portrays closer to the day-to-day experience of the common people.
