Tale of a Kathaka

Dance and Music Director: Antara Bhardwaj

Accompanied by Salar Nader (tabla), Pankaj Mishra (sarangi), Ben Kunin (sarod), Rajib Karmakar (sitar)

Date and Time: Saturday, July 9th | 6 pm


Through rhythm, music, and spoken word – Antara Bhardwaj brings to life the ancient story-telling dance form of Kathak from North India. Kathakas were story-tellers that travelled from village-to-village, sharing tales from the ancient epics through dance, music, and mime. Bhardwaj weaves a tale of what it means to be a story-teller in modern times through her fiery footwork, swift pirouettes, and vibrant musicality.
