Dance Reading 2016 presents
Join Reading’s own Drishti Dance for a beautiful and colourful evening of Kathak dance.
Chaturang (Ch-a-tu-r-ang) which means ‘the four colours’ 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 Puranic story, dramatic in essence, to present a ballad, Mohini;
Laya Anulaya (la-ei Anu-la-ei) is an indepth technical study, an inward facing narrative, creating a live 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.
Aur Ek Antaraal, is a contemporary Kathak work bringing together movement, music and poetry, exploring the journey through time and the spaces in between. Aur Ek Antaraal is redeveloped and adapted from Antaraal first seen at The Place, London in 'The Resolution' and shortly afterwards at Pegasus in Moving With the Times in February 2016.
Dance Reading is a celebratory month of dance brought to you by Junction Dance in association with the Reading Dance Professionals Network, Reading’s Year of Culture, The Cultural Partnership and Arts Council England. View our exciting, diverse programme at www.junctiondance.co.uk
