Legendry Kathak dancer Aditi Mangaldas was recently in UAE to perform her Classical and contemporary kathak pieces.
Titled ‘Utsav’ her classical piece showcased the festivities of India and the performance had a lot of dancing based on claps. Her solo piece of her ghungroos making a sound was exceptional. It was almost as if one is looking for the sound in a jungle. The command over her feet and the sound that comes from them is par excellence.
The contemporary piece ‘Timeless’ was indeed a beauty. Starting with the beats of the dholak or drums to almost dancing in silence. She and her troupe didn’t fumble even in silence.
A treat to watch her dancing and the choreography she brings to the stage is a sight for sore eyes.
The stage design, lights go very well with the choreography and takes a Kathak performance to a different level.
A must-watch performance whenever you get the chance.
