Text and Images from Kali rêve de devenir danseur

Kali VeerapathiranDans le village de pêcheurs de Kovalam, Kali Veerapathiran est un véritable héros.
Pas parce qu’il est acteur ou parce qu’il a combattu des méchants.
Non. C’est un héros parce qu’il a appris à danser.

Kali VeerapathiranOn est en l’an 2000 et Kali a huit ans. Comme beaucoup
de garçons de son âge, il vaà l’école, joue avec ses amis
et regarde la télévision.

Mais contrairement à beaucoup de garçons, Kali
pratique la danse.

Kali adore regarder Padmini danser à la télévision. C’est
une actrice célèbre et une danseuse exceptionnelle.

Kali fait comme s’il portait un salangai, ce gros bracelet de cheville à
grelots, et danse le bharatanatyam, comme elle.

Thari thana jonnu thimi Thaka thari kita thaka Thathinginathom Thathinginathom

Kali est devenu tellement bon danseur que ses professeurs lui ont demandé de danser à l’école. Il est
bientôt connu dans son petit village de pêcheurs comme danseur de bharatanatyam.

Un jour, Sarah Chanda, directrice d’un hôpital à Chennai, le voit sur scène. Elle est surprise de voir un garçon
aussi talentueux et impressionnée par le fait qu’il ait réussi à atteindre un tel niveau tout seul.

Kali rêve de devenir danseur— Est-ce que tu souhaiterais apprendre le bharatanatyam à la fondation Kalakshetra ? lui demande-t-elle
après le spectacle.

Kali sourit. Danser ? Les Intouchables ont rarement eu l’occasion d’apprendre le bharatanatyam, encore
moins de le maîtriser. Dans la famille de Kali, on ne peut pas s’offrir des cours de danse.

Et on n’a jamais entendu parler de garçons qui vivent de la danse. — Tu dois apprendre à danser dans une bonne école, Kali. Je prendrai en charge tous tes frais.

Sarah s’arrange pour que Kali puisse visiter Kalakshetra, l’une des meilleures écoles de danse en Inde.

C’est un très bel endroit dans Chennai, orné de nombreux arbres.

Leela Samson, directrice de Kalakshetra et également célèbre danseuse de bharatanatyam, demande à
Kali de danser.

Kali noue un sari par-dessus son pantalon et danse sur la musique d’un film.

Les professeurs pensent qu’il a l’étoffe d’un danseur classique.
