Kathakars School of Dance and Nirmiti are proud to feature this unique production featuring one of India’s leading exponents of classical dance Dr Uma Dogra. Dr Uma Dogra will take the audience on a journey of different stages in a woman’s life and her approach to it, ranging from falling in love for the first time to motherhood to ultimately aging. This production features use of poetry woven with Hindustani classical renditions set in the language of Kathak an ancient classical dance form. Uma Dogra is known for her Abhinaya (expressive dance style) and storytelling ability that has mesmerized audiences internationally.
Kathak: Kathak is one of the 8 major forms of Indian classical dances. The origin of Kathak is traditionally attributed to the traveling bards of ancient northern India, known as Kathakars or storytellers. The term Kathak is derived from the Vedic Sanskrit word Katha meaning “story”, and kathaka in Sanskrit means “he who tells a story”, or “to do with stories.”
