About the Show:
Through Indian film songs, Kathak dance and English dialogue, stories of exotic romance, humorous liaisons and irresistible entanglements unfold.
In the Kathak Ensemble's 2012 production TAAL SE TAAL (Match Your Rhythm To Mine), Kathak dances to the beat of four very different drummers: Bollywood's lush orchestrations of classic Indian film songs, Mozart's Allegro from the Jupiter Symphony, finger cymbals and ankle bells, and American composers Samuel Barber and John Adams. Tender romance, humorous liaisons, complex entanglements and gracious interchanges unfold against shifting soundscapes––sometimes lyrical, sometimes ferociously fast, always irresistibly melodic.
About the Artists:
We communicate the richness of Indian culture through its arts, most specifically through the classical North Indian dance style Kathak, its storytelling techniques and its accompanying Hindustani music. Ensemble programs strive to create a dialogue with familiar American arts forms, demystifying unique details of Indian culture by illuminating features it shares with American culture.
