Drishti Dance led by Kathak dancer Anuradha Chaturvedi returns to the Old Fire Station with Aangika, a rich programme combining traditional Kathak dances and exciting new choreographic works, featuring a dynamic interaction of Kathak and Ballet.  New choreographic works on show include Panchtatva – the Five Elements which explores the concept of the elements through a dynamic interaction of Kathak and digital media.  In an intriguing new work performed by Anuradha Chaturvedi and ballet exponent Ségolène Tarte, the classical dance forms of Kathak and Ballet come together in an intricate cross cultural dialogue.  Ségolène Tarte will also be presenting her work Triple Entendre, premiered to critical acclaim at Moving with the Times 2013.

The evening also features rare traditional Kathak compositions drawn from ancient Indian philosophy, mythology, folk lore and mediaeval Indo-Persian literature.  Sweeping abstract body movement, complex rhythm patterns executed through fast paced foot stamps timed to precise mathematical cycles and exquisite and subtle emotive expressions integrate seamlessly in a stunning display of technical nuances of the dance form.
