    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.


    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.


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


    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.
