KDT’s next tour will take them to St. Cloud, where they will perform “Kathak Yatra” at Paramount Center for the Arts on August 20. For tickets and more info, visit this page.
In addition to performances, KDT’s tour programming includes community outreach options in the form of master classes, lectures/demonstrations, and workshops in dance or folk art. All programs may be personalized to suit participants’ needs. Our repertory is as follows:
Ritu is a vivid portrayal of the Indian seasonal cycle, which both expands and subverts American expectations. Based on the lyrical poem “Ritusamhara” by the great Sanskrit poet Kalidasa, Ritu depicts the six Indian seasons within beautiful and intricate Kathak movement, celebrating nature’s beauty through Kathatk’s grace and subtlety.
Kathak Yatra follows Kathak’s evolution through time, beginning with its inception in Hindu temples and culminating in its contemporary multicultural incarnations. It explores Kathak’s duality as both classic and modern.
Featuring live music composed by 2016 McKnight Fellow Dr. Pooja Goswami Pavan and choreography by Rita Mustaphi, Sufiana captures the Sufi concepts of spiritual devotion and love of all humanity. It is uplifting, vibrant, and ecstatically alive!
