Chaturang, or the four colours- a dynamic quartet of Kathak dance work is an exploration of vast breadth and versatility of the traditional Indian form – each varied in characteristics, yet uniquely beautiful.
This production is an experiment with four pieces in Kathak, adapting the dance form to not only explore varied narrative styles but also emphasizes its vast breadth and versatility, dipping into the ancient Sanskrit story, dramatic in essence, to present a ballad, Mohini.
Laya Anulaya (la-ei Anu-la-ei), an indepth technical study, is an inward facing narrative, a dialogue between the percussionist and the dancer.
Panchatva, explores the connections between the elements and human senses, re-imagining the Nritta (pure dance) aspect of Kathak in tandem with Digital Media.
Antaraal, is a contemporary Kathak work bringing together movement, music and poetry, exploring the journey through time and the spaces between. (First seen at ‘Resolution 2016’, The Place London and Pegasus in Moving With the Times in February 2016).
