alapana organized "Neythal- the Continental Shelf" , a thematic Bharatanatyam solo performance of Ms Lavanya Raghuraman, an outstanding disciple of Padmabhushan Sri V.P.Dhananjayan & Padmabhushan Smt Shantha Dhananjayan. The performance was held at Esplanade Theatre Studio on 19Feb,2011 at 8pm.

Lavanya performed to a live music with a full orchestra. alapana artsí head and the famous Singapore musician, Mrs R.Banumathy herself was on the Veena providing a pleasing musical support.

Lavanya is endowed with perfect rhythmic sense and imagination in translating the bhava of the lines into probing abhinaya. She had the needed stage presence and her repertoire included traditional numbers all of them appropriate to the theme, Ocean and coastal life. Opening the show with a traditional pushpanjali in Gambhira Nattai, Lavanya went for a complex Kaanal Vari Padal from the 2nd century Tamil epic, Silappathikaram. It described the life in Poompuhar, a coastal city which was engulfed by the sea later. The emotions were portrayed in a picturesque manner. The visual description of the lamentation of the Nayaka by Lavanya was moving. She performed this piece with ease posturing as both Male and female with good effort as well as effect.
