Choreographic work and productions

 

Outstanding as her performances have been, Supriya is at her creative best as a choreographer and director of dance programs and dance dramas as evident in the following productions:

 

  • The much talked about dance-drama "Meera", which she produced, directed, choreographed and played lead role in was presented in 15 cities in US in 1995 and in each place played to packed houses and appreciative audiences.  

 

  • Combining dance in all its forms, pure drama, music, and just plain narration to present stories or thematic segments she devised her own presentation style in programs such as “Sri Rama Charithra” (1996), “Sri Krishna Vyjayanthi”(1996), “Jai Shiva Shankar”(1997), “Nritya Vijaya”(1998),

 

  • Vishnu Vaibhavam” (2001), a thematic presentation on Lord Vishnu  presented as a fund-raiser for Sri Venkateshwara Temple of NC was a roaring success. 

 

  • Mahishasura Mardhini” presented at Detroit AKKA conference, in 2002,  used  performers from multiple Kannada Kootas in America and some from Bangalore, making this a unique and unprecedented program.

 

  • Her presentation of “Sri Krishna Parijatha”, using musical style presentation  in Raleigh North Carolina, earned large sums of money for the Hindu Society of NC in 2002 and  re-presented as "Sri Krishna Tulabhara", in Bangalore  in 2003

 

  • Her latest forays into contemporary choreography have earned her great kudos.   Supriya presented an outstanding program called M and M depicting stories that inspired the two great leaders Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. She took on the challenging task of putting together such a challenging theme into a coherent, classy and entertaining program and stunned the Raleigh crowd into amazement.  

 

  • Her work in Roopa Viroopa, in collaboration with Dr. Sanjay Shantaram on Beauty and the Beast, further demonstrated her versatility and creativity and earned her new respect in the Raleigh community.

 

  • Rhythm - the heartbeat of  dance was a completely unique and creative  presentation that depicted how dance would  have evolved in India,  starting with tribal dance to the modern  fusion numbers.

 

  • A musical production of  the story of Alladin (another collaborative effort with Sanjay) in Hindi played to packed house in the Memorial Auditorium, in UNC Chapel Hill, in 2011

 

  • Ganeshaaya Namaha, a drama-dance production on the story of birth of Ganesha was a much talked about show during the Ganesha Chathurthi celebrations in Hindu Society of NC, in 2013
