    Angika - Journeys in Love (Contemporary Kathak Expressions video)

    Kathak originates from the word Katha, the art of storytelling. In turn, story is an idiom for emotions; the journey of a soul in rapture. Love is at the base of all emotions: in love, the soul transcends form, silence becomes dance, rhythm becomes colour, light sings and the body becomes a memory. Every feeling is both intense and immediate. Aangika is a manifestation of the tukra, a celestial pirouette encompassing the four seasons of love – hope, longing, anguish and joy. These journeys in love have been explored by Sanjukta Sinha through contemporary expressions distilled from the traditional vocabulary of Kathak.


    Ghazal

    A soul rooted in longing speaks through an evocative language: an urging frown, a teasing flutter, a bullying eyebrow, an alluring glance. Ghazal paints a sonorous ode to the impassable waters of desire.


    Tarana

    An ode to the languorous fulfillment of desire, Tarana is the dance of joy, the penultimate notes of love.

    Aamad
    https://www.youtube.com/wat......

    Performed within the repertoire and traditional form of Kathak, Aamad weaves the story of a love that is cosmically mystical, the hope of the one who will complete you.

    Shiv Tandav

    The glow of love has grayed: set in rolling waves of compelling anguish and rapid need, Shiva is heart-wrenching yearning, clothed in both despair and defiance. Show less
