KATHAK 2.0 – Transition into the future

The world that Kathak was steeped in has disappeared. There are no gopis carrying
earthen pots. The Yamuna is dry, birdcalls have been replaced by the noise of machines.

As we move into the next level of technological advance, how can traditional dance and music adapt to the new order?

Seeking the spirit of Kathak and bridging the way to its transition into the future, is the core of this work.

Ashavari will present Kathak 2.0 at Stein Auditorium, India Habitat Center, New Delhi on Monday 14th October, 2019, at 7 pm.
