ANKH presents a new dance performance choreographed by Southbank Centre Artist in Residence, Gauri Sharma Tripathi. Pushing boundaries of physical form, space, light and sound, magic is created on stage.

The dancers explore different dynamics and contrasting movement styles: slow and fast, shadow and light, reality and illusion. They maintain the traditional dance form of Kathak while creating a new dance vocabulary.

Dancers: Aneesha Shah, Dhruti Chowdhury, Falguni Upadhyaya, Heenal Amin, Hima Dattani, Jesal Patel, Payal Patel, Seema Sethi, Shivani Sethia, Trishna Kumari
Music: Hiren Chate
